Coiled Paper Basket

My husband owns a neat software company. They were cleaning out the cupboard last week and decided to recycle a boxful of out-of-date brochures.IMG_6969I love paper so I rescued a few and this is what they morphed into.


Strips of ripped paper wrapped over jute rope in a traditional coiling method. I like the chinking sound of the sewing machine needle going through glossy paper even though it’s a b*#@h to sew through.

FrameReady 5 was released 10 years ago. He’s now up to FrameReady Version 9, soon to be released this Spring.

I love making something new out of something discarded.
