Stay Home Basket
Firstly I hope you and your family is okay and I hope you're keeping as safe as you can. My thoughts are with my customers, our crafting community and everyone else during this very difficult time. I wanted to let you know about a design that I created and it will hopefully help raise funds to beat COVID-19.
The new design 'Stay Home Basket' will be popping up in the shop at 8pm BST (GMT+1) 17th April.
10% of sales from the Basket will be sent to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund and I will match the final total from these sales and make a donation from my family to our local food bank.
The idea for the Basket came about at the start of the year when I was making a Short Tote Bag, once the tote bag was made and I was about to press it into shape I realised what a great basket shape it was. I decided to add some fabric and create some outside pockets and some little grab handles on each side and the design works really well. Each of these baskets are a 'one of a kind' and they are made and ready to ship!
Great large basket ideal for storing a garment or a couple of WIPs for keeping next to your favourite crafting spot. Grab handles made from leather or fabric (see photo to see what this basket has) on either side make it really easy to carry around. The Canvas material is waterproof and each basket has a solid Canvas base meaning it would be ideal to pop next to you in the garden.
Each basket as three outside pockets and one inside pocket. The outside pockets are lined in the same interior lining material and these are interfaced meaning they will keep their shape. The inside also has a clip thats ideal for storing stitch markers.
Each basket measures has a base measuring (approx) 11.5" width and 5.5" depth and the outside measures 9" in height, as you can see from the photo the inside opens up lovely and wide (around 12" by 8") to store lots of yarny goodness inside!
As always, you're support is very much appreciated and more so than ever at this tricky time. Sending lots of love and positive healthly wishes to everyone....Tracy x
