Someone had been searching for an oval basket pattern, and every now and then when someone is looking for something, I get a good picture in my head that I HAVE to do. This was one. The basket's measures app. 5 x 2 1\/2" made with two strands of worsted weight cotton held together, and has a bit of a 'lip'. Handle is made with one strand, and has a plastic canvas insert (optional) to help keep it stiff. Thread covers are designed to fit the small plastic Easter eggs (about 2 1\/2" long). This basket is good for Easter decor, but cotton is washable, and this size is ideal for the small decorative soaps, and especially the sample sizes some sellers here on Etsy offer! So think ahead to Mother's Day...or even Christmas, done in Christmas colours. Hallowe'en in orange and black...all in all, a very versatile basket!
