I just got this pattern in at Spun Right Round and I thought I'd give it a go myself. No sewing machine required!
11 yards of 16/32" cotton cording
1 jelly roll or 40 2.5"x44" strips of cotton fabric
1 Large Darning Needle
Once I got the hang of it, this little guy was quite easy to make. I didn't use a complete Jelly Roll to make this. I found that I was winding and weaving a bit to tight towards the top and needed to leave some space for the opening of the basket.
