rope bowls and baskets

This was such a satisfying project, i’m now more than a little obsessed with making these. A while ago i saw this tutorial on A Pair and a Spare and knew it would be a perfect project to create pretty storage in baby birds room. I kept things simple leaving the rope natural and using a rosey pink thread for the stitching. I experimented with using a thick rope and a thin one, and i definitely like how the bowls/baskets made with the thicker rope look much more. Plus they were quicker to make (ha! i love quick!).

If you’re looking for a quick and pretty DIY storage solution, i would definitely recommend checking out the tutorial here.
