  • How to make a bowl or basket. Corded Organic Cotton Basket - Step 1
    Step 1

    Find a cotton cord that is about 5/32 and plyable.

    Choose your yarn that you want to use. It does not have to be organic cotton, in fact, you can use any left over yarn from other projects. This makes for a good clean up project.

    Step 2

    Use the super glue to attach the yarn to the cord at the very end. Continue wrapping the yarn around the cord, making sure that you are not leaving any cord showing. Use the super glue to attach the yarn every few inches. This will ensure that you will not have to rewind it if let go.

    When you have wrapped a substantial amount of cord you can start sewing the cord together as shown. If you are concerned about the center piece, you can super glue some yarn in to cover it up.
