Fall is a perfect time a year to curl up with a blanket, favorite treats, drinks and that special someone. You have all seen the amazing bags, totes, baskets and so much more with poms and tassels. Now for this amazing wire leather basket/tote, I instantly fell in love with it! Is it not amazing! I wanted to have my very own take a long basket for a shopping day, a special date, a fireside get together and accessorize it with my favorite colors of the season. Once I got it home I started thinking about how to make it fun! I began making different size poms and color combos that would match this amazing ribbon I have from Cream City Ribbon which curls beautifully and knew it would make a great addition. This ribbon is uniquely unwoven and sure to get noticed!
This basket is the perfect size for me and I loved how it turned out! My first outing was to the Farmers Market and I was stopped often by many inquiring about my fun basket. The Basket and goodies you see below were for a simple get together. As you can see I filled it with a warm blanket, IZZE Sparkling Pomegranate flavored juice, plates, napkins, glasses and a box of chocolate truffles and cookies. I also added ribbon to my goodie box. Now all you need is a warm fire, special someone and your all set to go!

Begin by making multiple poms in different sizes and color combos. Then you will want to start tying off and securing each pom to your basket in whatever design and or layout you wish. You just want to make sure everything blends perfectly.
Once you have done that you will want to start adding your ribbon in-between your poms with coordinating ribbon to enhance the look and design.
At this point you can start curling all your ribbon as you wish. Cream City Ribbon looks amazing curled!
Now you have your very own Pom & Ribbon Take A long Basket!
What would your color combo be on your basket?
