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,

Two Pie Basket

This basket is called a "Two Pie Basket" because it was made to hold 2 pies! I wove this basket at a convention in St. Louis several years ago. It was a class I took from Jim Rutherford. The basket is made from maple and has leather hinges. The base is solid wood and the stakes are nailed into the base. The rim is also nailed on. There is a raised platform that sits on the base. This allows you to put two pies in the basket without the top one crushing the bottom. Enjoy and Happy Weaving.

I love the two pie basket. I have a plastic cake/pie carrying case which is so BLAH!

Your basket is super cute. How long does it take to make a basket like that?

So that is what that type of basket is called (and what it is for0!!! My grandmother had a modern version of that and she used it for knitting needles and yarn. Lovely!
