ATG / Twist Reuse / Upcycle

Good Morning,
Today we have a brand new challenge over at 613 Avenue Create.

As always its Anything Goes with the Optional Twist of Reuse/ Upcycle
Here is my project for the challenge…



( Bride and Groom's names blocked out for privacy).

This project was very much a labour of love. My Goddaughter is getting married in a few weeks and wanted a vintage basket for guests to deposit their cards in.
I had an old picnic basket hiding in the cupboard under the stairs which was redundant because of our super cool bag / picnic set.
The straps were removed; it was relined with pretty floral material; a few handmade embellishments added and the basket is transformed. Both she and I are delighted with the result.
I would like to enter this project into the following challenges….

  3. Wow, Sheryl, this is absolutely awesome! It must have been quite tricky to do, and must have taken quite a while, too, but so worth it!

    When I were a lass we had a picnic basket that was like yours (before embellishment) but it was considerably more battered! One time my bro and his best friend used it (empty) as a goal when they were playing football, and it never really recovered!!
