The "art" of decorating

Something I love to work with is colour and cloth. This basket took about 15 minutes to make. I just took a regular straw basket, covered the bottom in red silk cloth and stapled it. Then I filled the basket with cloth to make it look like it was filled with the dry red flowers on top. Somali weddings are all about colour, glitz and gold, so this baby got to stay on stage all evening.
