Wet Washing Basket

 

 

This basket was made for Honor.  Wet washing baskets are traditionally made in white stripped willow so the wet washing doesn't get stained by the willow and most of the cut edges are on the outside so the washing doesn't get snagged as it goes in and out of the basket. The addition of little hazel feet to keep their bottoms off the ground while sitting by the washing line was a lovely extra taught to me by Sue Chapman.
