To make this fabulous basket first you have to line a bowl with cling film. After that put a ball of crochet thread in it and pour some fabric stiffener over it. Inflate a balloon and tie one end of the thread to the top of the balloon. Then start wrapping the thread around the balloon and keep on doing it until the entire balloon in covered with a web like structure. Rest the thread covered balloon over a cupcake tray and leave for almost 24 hours until it is completely dry. When the thread has dried pop the balloon with a pin. Using scissors make a hole in the basket. Then cut two discs of cloth, put them on each other and sew along the sides leaving almost an inch unsewn. After that take it inside out and fill the pocket with beans or rice. Sew the open end and put it in the basket to give it some weight and make it stand on its own. Then using a glue gun cover the edges of the opening with a ribbon or any other trim you like. Fill it with goodies and your basket is ready. For more details visit hmh designs.
