Chinese New Year (CNY) is just around the corner, I am spring cleaning and decorating my house during the weekends. Last weekend, hubby took out a huge box of past year’s CNY ornaments and decorations, including this, this and this I made last year (click the links for tutorials and patterns). My son found his king crown – a large treat holder I sewed last year, I used it to put mandarin oranges. He refused to let me use it this year “This is MINE!!!!”, holding his crown behind his back while running away from me… he is being a classic “terrible 2” toddler… he wants to be in total control!!!!
I need a new basket this year so I made this – Hexagon Basket which is”flatten-able”. Simply tie it up to construct a steady hexagon basket. It is easy to stow away when not in use, just untie the cords or ribbons to flatten and it won’t take up much storage space.
The Hexagon Basket is made of silk and satin for oriental tradition deco but it could be for any occasion with different color scheme and fabric. If you are not fancy about the oriental look of theHexagon Basket, just adapt the pattern to suit the occasion you are celebrating, for example, red/green for Christmas, orange/black for Halloween, white for wedding, etc…..
