This morning I decided to see if I could teach myself to make a basket using my sewing machine, variegated thread, and clothesline. I'd seen a video online last week and bought my clothesline the other day. In under an hour I had used all but 6 inches of the 50' clothesline and most of a spool of thread, rewinding the bobbin at least four times. I even figured out how to make a loopy handle. And I made this in less than an hour!
