May Your Life Be Like A Basket...Useful...Bountiful...Beautiful...

Basketmaster's Weavings is about my passions, much of which revolves around basket weaving. I weave with reed and I love teaching others to weave. Many of the patterns and styles that I show in the blog are geared to the beginning weaver, or even the brand new weaver. If you have been thinking about wanting to learn to weave, then this blog is for you. Throughout the blog and videos I take you step by step through each and every process of weaving. I want you to be successful in weaving the very first time you try. For the intermediate and advanced weaver, my wish is that you take ideas that I show, mix them up a bit, and incorporate them into your own beautiful creations.

Happy Weaving and Baskets of Blessings to all my visitors,

Nancy

Mini Sleigh Basket


I made this basket over 10 years ago and love this little pattern. The pattern came from the Farmer's Wives. http://www.farmerswivesbaskets.com/index.html It was from the Farmer's Wives that I purchased the little wooden base with predrilled holes. I was on their website today and no longer see the pattern which is too bad because I always thought it was awfully sweet. The stakes are made from #4 round and the sleigh runners are made from #6 round. The weaving is 11/64" flat and #2 round. This little basket is just right for holding some Christmas candy. It weaves up quick and easy and makes a great little gift.
Enjoy!
