    What a clever idea, Beth. The ombre pattern is on trend and the strap design is ingenious 🙂

    This is so cute! I’m going to share this with my Mum – she’s always making bags, we’ve got piles and piles of homemade goods in the corner at home.

    So clever!! I love the ombre idea ( and it is much easier than dyeing or painting it on). I definitely “need” one of these 😆.

  6. Susan Luke says:

    I can see why its one of your favorite projects….its STUNNING! The ombre effect is subtle, but so effective! I am filing this away in my brain to be attempted at some point in the future. You are just so very clever!

  7. Omg! This is SUPER GORGEOUS 😍😍😍

    I’ve been looking for a pretty basket to sit besides my hamper to toss the occasional handwash item into so it doesn’t get lost in the regular laundry but everything I like is insanely expensive. This idea fits the bill perfectly, with the added benefit of being squishy enough to roll up and stash when not needed!
