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

Victorian Christmas Sleigh


I love this basket. Don't I say that about all my baskets? The title of this pattern is "Victorian Christmas Sleigh". It is an advanced basket that I wove from a pattern written by Mary Skillings. I even taught this as a class several years ago to students who had been weaving with me for a while. The runners are #7 round reed. The jingle bells on the loops add a sweet touch to ring in that Santa is coming. This year I have it sitting up above my kitchen cabinets and it just makes me smile every time I see it.

Enjoy!

Love,

Nancy

The sleigh basket is gorgeous!
I'm tickled to pieces to be able browse your blog. I love baskets! Yours are just lovely.

I'm way behind, but I wanted to thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I have a granddaughter who will be getting a sewing machine soon, so I'd like to make a little sewing basket with a lid for her accessories..any idea where I could find a basket pattern for this? TIA!
