Kits are excellent project starters, and this one is no different! This Coiled Rope Basket Kit contains the following:

20 Yards of 3/16” 100% cotton rope (an exclusive Mountain Thread Company braid made right here in North Carolina)

Full color, detailed instructions and illustrations

1 heavy duty sewing machine needle (denim needle, size 100/16)

Instructions detail how to:

-make different base shapes (round or oval),

-incorporate fabrics and thread color,

-customize the size and shape of your design,

-add a unique finish

-plus LOTS of helpful notes, suggestions, and ideas for the project!

The Design Your Own Coiled Rope Basket Kit is a skill-building springboard for sewists who want to add versatility to their repertoire.

In addition to the materials included in the kit, makers will need a sewing machine**, scissors, and all purpose thread. We suggest a high quality 100% cotton 50 weight thread such as 100% cotton Aurifil 50 weight. Makers can also incorporate any of their own fabric remnants if desired (fabrics are not included).

**Wondering if your sewing machine can do this? If you have hemmed jeans/pants, sewn canvas, or stitched through multiple fabric layers with your machine, the answer is most likely 'yes.' If you've tried to do any of the previous sewing projects and your machine gets cranky and refuses to play, this might be more of a challenge for you. But, since each machine is different this is up to you!

This project is suitable for sewists who are confident in steps like changing the machine needle, adjusting stitch length and width, and pivoting (confident beginner or intermediate level).
