Odds 'n' Ends Basket

I can't believe that it has taken me so long to make such a mini make as this little basket which I started working on a couple of years ago, how ridiculous is that!

The basket was worked up quite quickly but because it was made with double knitting yarn it was a bit floppy and wouldn't really stand up all by itself, so it quickly became another one of those unfinished things that languish in the back of a cupboard.

It resurfaced many times before I tried to hand sew some interfacing material inside to line it with, but it wasn't thick enough so I resorted to using a piece of rug canvas covered with a bit of gingham instead and that seems to be holding it up.

Finally, I added a flower to pretty it up a bit and now I can say that it's finished at last :-)
