I made this for a baby shower where my daughter teaches 1st grade. The credit for the pattern goes to Amylou who posted her cake pic a couple weeks ago. She posted and the next day I got a plate with the theme which was a clothesline. It was a big hit, thanks Amylou. Anyway since my daughter was putting all the gifts she'd bought into a wicker laundry basket I made a big oval cake and did it in a basket weave, my first attempt, to match her basket. I'm pleased with the result.
