  4. Slip stitch one row on top of the other row then connect the ends together to form a tube.
     

Base:

  2. Cut a circle from the basket fabric twice the size of the base, fold outside edges under ¼” and gather stitch around the circle. Insert the Shape ‘n Create circle and draw up on the gather stitches: tie off. Slip stitch the base to the puff tube to form the basket.
     

Handle:

  1. Make handle using Create-A-Strap interfacing. Cover the raw edges using white 5/8"-7/8" ribbon; edge-stitch along both sides of the handle. Attach the handle to the inside of bag.

  2. Make 16 small leaves.

    1. Fold ribbon at a 45 ° to form a point.
       
    2. Fold the other side to 45 °.
       
    3. Trim ribbon even at the base and baste.
       
    4. Gather the basting stitches and make a knot.
       
  3. In the space where the puffs meet glue a rose with a leaf on each side.
