Knitting Basket Overhaul

Bought myself an antique knitting basket from Craigslist to tame my growing collection of leftover wool. It has beautiful turned dowels at the top but the cover was in a terrible state, so out with the old and in with the new.  I had bought a remnant of heavy brocade for $1 at a yard sale just last weekend and it is perfect.  I chose to have the tapestry side on the outside and the embroidered silk on the inside.  I know my sewing isn't perfect but I am very happy with the end result.  Total cost $21.  If anyone needs the instructions for revamping their basket cover or indeed for making a complete knitting basket they can be found HERE
