Step 4: Attach the standards to the bottom.

Picture of 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)
