Braided Jute Basket

 A few weeks ago, Caitlin from The Merrythought posted thisBraided Juste Basket Tutorialand I have not stopped thinking about making baskets in all different shapes and sizes. I bought 900 yards of jute (for only $12 I might add) and I have barely scratched the surface with these two baskets. I followed the first few steps of Caitlin’s tutorial and then my basket just started to take a shape of it’s own.

This week I hope to start on a larger basket to carry to the farmers market. Thanks Caitlin for the inspiration, you girls at The Merrythought are always killin’ it with your DIY projects!
