Coiled Rope Kit: Set of Coasters and Basket

Sew your very own set of rope coasters and a matching rope storage bowl for them with this Set of Coasters and Basket DIY Rope Basket Kit from The Mountain Thread Company. These coasters are unique, durable, washable, beautiful - and, best of all - made by you! The kit makes four 4-inch coasters and a 5-inch storage bowl to hold them.

The Set of Coasters and Basket Kit contains the following:

  • 15 Yards of 3/16” 100% cotton rope (an exclusive Mountain Thread Company braid made in our home state of North Carolina) to make four coasters and a bowl

  • Introduction card with details for machine settings, thread selection, and expanded tips for fabric wrapping and customizing the baskets

  • Detailed instructions with illustrations for making the projects AND finishing detail

  • 1 heavy duty sewing machine needle

  • A link to unlock bonus material on our website.

In addition to the materials included in the kit, makers will need a sewing machine**, scissors, and 50 wt thread. Makers can also incorporate any of their own fabric remnants if desired (fabrics are not included).

**The Mountain Thread Company’s signature 3/16” rope was developed specifically for coiled rope basketry, and is custom made exclusively for The Mountain Thread Company. It is similar to layers of denim or canvas, which can be sewn on domestic machines. Use the provided heavy duty needle (a size 100/16 denim needle) to accommodate the thickness of the rope.

This is an introductory basket project for sewists who are confident in steps like changing the machine needle, adjusting stitch length and width, and pivoting.
