It was a nice blue.
So I slip stitched it by hand - no hook - until there wasn't much cable left. That became the handle. It looked like it wanted to be a basket hanging on the inside door handle, to hold small-ish things to go out to the car.
Next time, I want the base to be more solid. This needs a small mat - the bottom of the basket is a bit too open.
But it was a good try, I think, and took only about an hour to make.
