Its Done

Well, I think that I am pretty happy with the way it all turned out.
I have a few ideas that I will change on the next one but all in all, I think its pretty cool and large and very functional.

 Handles are wrapped with red wool and then crossed wrapped with gold thread
 Inside of lid is padded and then ribbon has been crossed, stapled and stitched to reinforce it.
 It is lined with Onasburg fabric and the bottom is lined with red wool felt
The lid is padded and trimmed with vintage cotton lace and the center is punch needle stating She Seeketh Wool & Flax .

The basket itself is a vintage picnic basket that is in awesome condition.
This is for sale if any one is interested in it. Just email me and I can give you all details on dimensions

. Price is $150. plus shipping.
