Ponderosa Pine Needle Button Basket



A unique hand crafted basket for your sewing collection!

We hand make our baskets with Oregon Ponderosa Pine needles tightly stitched with waxed artificial flat sinew. The needles for this little basket have been dyed navy blue and two vintage buttons have been mounted together for the centerpiece.

Sorry, buttons not included!

The basket measures 2 ¾ inches across by 2 inches high and features a fancy Wheat Stitch binding. The Wheat stitch requires 2 -3 times longer in making a basket than the standard plain straight stitch binding.
