Fabric and clothesline rope basket

Finally, a picture of the basket. You can see where the rope is running through the channels that I sewed. On the back side, loops of the rope are exposed and laced together to join the sides. The sides are sewed to a bottom of fabric-wrapped clothesline. The basket collapses to almost flat when empty; only the top half has rope in it.

I chose to sew the channels first, for precision, and run the rope through it later. This required drawing a safety pin attached to a string first, and then using the string to pull the rope through.

Project cost to me was less than two cents, for thread. The other materials were handed down.
