Oregon Ponderosa Pine Needle Button Basket



Oregon Ponderosa Pine Needle Button Basket

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 bright red and a vintage brass rose button has been mounted for the lids centerpiece. 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.


The buttons are for display purposes only and are not included with the basket.
