Folk art basket

I thought I had just about finished this folk art basket by Button Angel yesterday. However when I went to turn it inside out and finish it, I realised there were six leaves not stitched down. Hmm. Do last night I unpicked it and have remedied my mistakes this morning.

I mostly followed the pattern but made a few adjustments as I went:
I made the basket round rather than oval
Some circles I replaced with buttons
Stems were made out of ribbon
And I used fabric for the appliqué rather than wool felt.
