Apple Laundry Basket
Basket made of coiled willow and string with apple juice cartons as a central theme and structure on the front and back, with a lid with a wooden stick to act as the handle.
Materials and techniques
The front and back were assembled first by arranging the cartons in circles. They were then stitched together. Two side panels were made next. Then all sections were joined together with coiled cardboard. The lid was made by layering card and shaping it then an edging strip was stitched on and the hole for the lid cut out.
