I have a large basket that was packed in a box too long. How can I make it flat on the bottom and round again?

    You don't say if the basket is made of reed, willow, bullrushes, or whatever. In general, If it has no dyes that might run, you can wet it down and reshape it by hand. Work it gently until it is back in its original shape, then stuff it with whatever you have that will help maintain the shape until it dries in a warm room or in the airstream from a small fan. Keep tending it carefully until it dries.

    If this isn't like your basket, maybe you could include a picture!

    Hope this helps~
