DIY Kit - Oval Basket Kit - Coiled Rope Basket Kit

from 22.00

The DIY Oval Basket Kit from The Mountain Thread Company sets you up to sew one of our most popular designs: the Oval Basket! This size of basket will make its own uses - collecting keys, holding phones or remote controls, organizing a desktop, or gifting a friend.

This intermediate level kit is ideal for the crafty sewist who is ready to build and develop new skills related to coiled rope basketry.

The Oval Basket Kit contains the following:

12 Yards of 100% cotton rope (an exclusive Mountain Thread Company braid made right here in North Carolina) to make one oval basket

Instructions for making an oval basket - including tips for customizing the basket AND three finishing details

1 heavy duty sewing machine needle

In addition to the materials included in the kit, makers will need a sewing machine**, scissors, and all purpose thread.  Makers can also incorporate any of their own fabric remnants if desired (fabrics are not included).

**Wondering if your sewing machine can do this?  If you have hemmed jeans/pants, sewn canvas, or stitched through multiple fabric layers with your machine, the answer is most likely 'yes.'  If you've tried to do any of the previous sewing projects and your machine gets cranky and refuses to play, this might be more of a challenge for you. But, since each machine is different this is up to you!

This is an intermediate basket project for sewists who are confident in steps like changing the machine needle, adjusting stitch length and width, and pivoting, and who may have some prior experience with coiled rope basketry (not required, but helpful). For an introductory kit, see the Rope & Fabric Coaster Kit. For an expanded rope basketry kit, see the Coiled Rope Basket Kit.

Add another length of rope in the drop down menu to make a second basket, or purchase additional cut lengths of rope by clicking here.

Spools of rope are available by clicking here.

Basket photos are for demonstration purposes only - this kit will guide you through making your own unique baskets based on your awesome style and personal taste.
