Washing instructions

I take the full sewn doily or the partial sewn basket
and lay flat in a pizza pan
I leave for about 10-20 minutes or until
the showing water Soluble Stablizer is dissolved then I lightly rinse under the tap till all excess is gone,
about 30 seconds. then lay on a towel, smoothing out
then I lay a towel on top and a heavy book
for about 30 minutes to an hour,
then I remove the book and top towel
and let dry.

Basket Assembly

you will need 6 pineapples
of the basket design and one center

Sew together using a zig zag leaving the final seam open

Follow the washing directions for the doily, and then sew the rest of the basket together
the water Soluble Stablizer now is working like a real stiff Starch Now place the basket bottom and zig zag around
keeping each pineapple matching with the section of the base

When center is totally sewn then turn in your machine.
the basket will cup behind ,
