The clothesline is 6 mm thick
and it showed that I could not sew it with my machine. So I unravelled all 15 m resulting in this bunch:
and changed to a thinner more flexible line which DH had in his very large bag for cords. When we travel to the renovation house we have always many things in our trailor which have to be fixed with thousands of meters of strong poly-propylene cord.
Flat like a stamp for the bottom.
Then it has to be bent
towards the machine
This machine is about 60 years old, it is like an elephant and regularly fed with a drop of tasty (for the machine!) oil...
After a lot of turns it resulted in this.
The finished basket. I embellished it with perle 5 in blue and made French knots in the first ditch.
It is strong and firm and I am very satisfied.
