It's a Gail Hendrix design and features a repeating pattern of creel fishing and Nantucket baskets. A closeup:
My brother-in-law is a fly fisherman and I was originally going to stitch the belt for him but after looking at it, I think the Nantucket baskets make it a wee bit feminine. So another one for me! Since my Nantucket basket is super old and has seen better days, I spent some time searching Etsy for the perfect companion accessory.
Vintage creel basket
A decorative version featuring a fish clasp
A pretty monogrammed Nantucket basket purse
This basket has a neat story. It's from the 1920s and was passed down from father to son.
A key fob to stitch to coordinate with my belt. I love the blue background and think I may use a shade similar to this for the belt.
I found lots of charms that would look sweet on a charm bracelet
This pincushion would be perfect to hold my needles
I can't wait to get started on the belt!
