Since baskets cannot be made of jute alone, a raid on my stash of craft materials seemed in order. (Okay, and one stop at Michaels with a coupon to buy a ball of lovely hemp cord!)
In addition to plain jute and hemp, some coloured jute, wool, metallic cord, paper twist and waxed linen mixed things up a bit.
I suppose the evolution to Easter baskets was inevitable.
I just love the texture and shaping of the hemp.
And I think I see next year’s Christmas ornament in the making!
