Basket With Handles Coiled Rope Kit

It’s time now to add HANDLES to your projects with the Basket with Handles DIY Rope Basket Kit from The Mountain Thread Company. Make a new bread basket, a key corral, or the loveliest craft room storage. Use the introduction of the handle technique as a springboard for future projects with portability in mind.

The round basket measures approximately 8-9” across the top and 2-2.5” tall (actual finished dimensions may vary).

The Basket with Handles Kit contains the following:

  • 15 Yards of 3/16” 100% cotton rope (an exclusive Mountain Thread Company braid made in our home state of North Carolina) to make one round basket

  • Introduction card with details for machine settings, thread selection, and expanded tips for fabric wrapping and customizing the baskets

  • Detailed instructions with illustrations for making the basket with handles AND finishing detail

  • 1 heavy duty sewing machine needle

  • A link to unlock bonus material on our website.

In addition to the materials included in the kit, makers will need a sewing machine**, scissors, and Aurifil 50 wt cotton thread or Variegated 50 wt cotton thread. Makers can also incorporate any of their own fabric remnants if desired (fabrics are not included).

**The Mountain Thread Company’s signature 3/16” rope was developed specifically for coiled rope basketry, and is custom made exclusively for The Mountain Thread Company. It is similar to layers of denim or canvas, which can be sewn on domestic machines. Use the provided heavy duty needle (a size 100/16 denim needle) to accommodate the thickness of the rope.

This is an introductory basket project for sewists who are confident in steps like changing the machine needle, adjusting stitch length and width, and pivoting. Check out our tutorial videos to preview coiled rope basketry techniques.

Basket photos are for demonstration purposes only - this kit will guide you through making your own unique baskets based on your awesome style and personal taste.
