I've also seen baskets and rugs made with the coiled strips - you just adjust the size of the piping cord to suit your project. The ones we made "back in the day" didin't use fusible anything - we just wrapped torn strips of fabric around the cord the same way you would when covering a wreath form (another idea for the fabric there, too), then coiled them.

Thanks for the reminder - cute idea!
Genuis!! Thanks!!!
