Step 4: Attach the Standards to the Bottom.
Arrange your prepared standards around the edge of the base. This will look like rays of the sun, (unless your basket is square).
The open end of the standards is then sewn to the base, which seals the picket and encloses the wire completely.
Sew all your standards to the base as shown.
If you use the sewing machine, be careful to walk the needle over the wires so you don't break the needle. Use a long stitch length, because short stitch length makes many holes close together which can cause tearing. (Ir's like a perforated line)
