Miss Spider's Treat Basket

Lion Brand® Microspun - Vanna's Choice®


Exact gauge is not essential to this project.

Cover outside of mixing bowl snugly with plastic wrap. Cover a flat surface with plastic wrap. Place bowl upside down on flat surface. Pour a small amount of fabric stiffener into plastic bag.
Wind into small skeins, then drop skeins into stiffener in bag. Close bag, and knead gently to saturate yarn with stiffener.
Squeeze out excess stiffener, then drape yarn up and down the sides of the bowl, looping back to center bottom, all the way around.
Allow piece to dry.
In same way, wrap yarn lengths horizontally around bowl. Allow to dry, then add additional lengths as desired.

When piece is thoroughly dry, remove from bowl and use craft glue to reinforce strands at any weak points.
With B, and following package instructions, make a small pom-pom. Cut chenille stem into quarters, tie together at center and fan out for legs.
Glue pom-pom to legs. Glue pearl beads to pom-pom for eyes.
Glue completed spider to bowl.

I did this with my grandchildren, aged 5 and 6 and it turned out great! I even passed it on to some of my friends.
