With a few simple techniques a beginner can easily make a sturdy miniature basket useful for a dolls house scale miniature scene. This simple fruit basket design uses two strands of linen embroidery thread woven over fine wire to make a one inch basket. The same techniques would be used with wicker cane to make a full sized basket, although the edging technique would be different.

To make a basket in 1:24 scale you can weave the basket over finer wire with a single strand of embroidery thread. The techniques learned from this project will allow you to weave many other shapes of baskets.
