This miniature egg basket will be the perfect addition to your holiday tree, wreath, garland, or mantel. It is made using the same quality materials and to the same scale and shape as our standard sized egg baskets. The tiny handles provide a simple way to hang this sweet basket on the tree, wreath, or garland. With a loop of ribbon or twine, they can be added to stocking holders. Perched on top of a place setting at your family table, you'll add a bit of texture and color to your holiday table.
Unlike our standard sized baskets, these tiny baskets aren’t meant to be put to work. They can’t be used to carry fresh eggs, to collect ripe produce from the garden, or to bring home your treasures from the farmer’s market. Instead, they are purely decorative. They’re handmade keepsakes whose only purpose is to add a little beauty to your days. They stand between 1.5 and 2 inches tall and measure between 4.5 and 5 inches wide across the two handles.
These tiny decorative egg baskets are diminutive in size but big on heart. They’re filled to overflowing with the handmade farmhouse style we stitch into everything we make here at the farmhouse. We’re bringing each of these little baskets together with the same materials and care you’ve come to expect from our larger baskets. While they may be smaller in scale, they’re no less beautiful or special than our standard sized creations.
All of our coiled fabric baskets are made by hand at 1840 Farm. Each fabric strip is torn by hand before being combined with other complimentary fabrics and then wrapped around a length of cording, joining the fabrics as we go. The fabric wrapped cord is then coiled and stitched together using a zigzag stitch on my sewing machine. I continue to wrap the coil and shape the basket as it is stitched, ending each one in our trademark spiral design.
