The fruit of my labor....

It was a tough job sewing this moses basket..... and after struggling and slogging for two days, finally it was done. Alhamdulillah. This is for Puan Hajah Zuraida.


During the constructions, I made sure that this basket wrapper could stands on its own. So the base and wall lining were battered and stippled accordingly and all raw edges were bounded with bias using the same fabrics. The wall lining at the hooded part was shaped to that of the weaved flow of rattan basket.
The hood cover was trimmed with lace and gathered with elastic band and has no batting. To secure it in place, a ribbon was sewn on each sides, and finally it will pair with another one from the wall lining.
To get the fabric consumed less, I replaced the base with bold material...... it hides perfectly well though .... :)

An attempt to sew the binder to all edges after attaching the lace. The lace was sewn taper-off on each end of tie-attachments.
