Did you know you can use your sewing machine to sew a rope basket? I didn't until I saw Kiera Coffee do just that. Mind, blown. I guess I always thought you'd need an industrial sewing machine to do such a thing. Anyhoo, Kiera used laundry rope and lamp cord to make her basket. She also shot the (white) laundry rope with various-colored spray paint to give it a mottled look. Kiera suggests that the hardest part of the project is holding the first coil in place; the rest, she says, is 'easy.' Think about it...we can make rope baskets any size we want!
