Perfect for a baby shower, a centerpiece, a mantel decoration, or just for collecting herbs and flowers from your garden, this little 5-3/4” by 8” basket is exactly right for all kinds of things. The bottom is made of two spiral medallions stitched over a white cardboard disk, to give it great structure and strength. A spritz of starch stiffens up the barrel and adorably self-rolling strap.

With just a ball each of rose pink and ecru, you could make a coordinating set of two: one rose pink with ecru stripes, and one ecru with rose stripes. Have fun!
