Necessity is the mother of invention as the saying goes. I came up with the design for the Ursula Hanging Basket because I was tired of my sewing room floor being the catch-all for my cutting scraps and thought there has to be a better way. I wanted a large basket that I could attach to the edge of my table so that I could sweep all of my fabric scraps into it. I used an oval quilting hoop as the frame for the basket and a quilter's clamp (found in the quilting notions department) to hold the basket to my table and I made a weighted heart using curtain weights (you could use BBs or anything else small and heavy) so that the basket hangs straight. And then I thought to myself "why stop there"? So I tried buttoning 2 baskets together and hung them on a wall. I'm in the process of remodeling my mudroom and wanted a place to throw and sort mittens, caps, scarves, etc. This was the perfect solution!
