Toto2 Basket Kit Listed


The Toto2 basket kit is finally listed at ModMinSucc+Sundries. Studying the above pictured basket, which is not the one Dorothy carried in the movie — this is the wicked basket — gives me the idea to try some thick/thin weaving. Thanks, Almira Gulch!


The Toto2 instructions ran to one-anna-half pages O_o



Printed front and back, folded in half. Tidy. But of course I spotted the spacing error in the name (twice!) after they were all printed. It’s going to stay in for now :/

And now it’s time for a glass of relax and eyes away from cameras and screens. Check it out!

    Lions and tigers and baskets, oh my. The kit looks challenging, but the finished product looks oh-so-lovely!

      Really, it’s not any more difficult than the round lidded basket. The handle/s are a bit fiddly, but if you take your time, especially with glue application, it all goes together very well :) Really!
      I want to make a hamper-style basket with straps and buckles. And a cloth lining. *That* is challenging :)
      Also some tiny baguettes.

      Blake, I look forward to seeing what *you* might do with this kit. Picnic baskets may contain many — not necessarily traditional — things :)

    OMG – too cute!!! But I don’t know if I have the patience or skills to put one together. Great job and I love the Toto name and reference.

      Bennie, the whole kit goes together in under an hour, and I’m pretty sure you have the skills. All the tedious measuring and cutting is already done :) You just get to color and assemble! Thanks for the props, and I’m glad you appreciate the Toto name and version.

      Thanks, Brae! I’m swamped with work this week but have been playing around with a basket liner and picnic blanket. Think I’ll post a pattern and let others have all the fun.
