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,

Share a Basket Sunday - Cutlery Basket or Silverware Basket

I designed this basket to fit a divided wooden insert that I had. The base is woven with fillers so it is solid and the insert just sets in the basket. I used a #1 round space dyed reed to create the cross stitch pattern around the basket. It's perfect for those 4th of July picnics that are coming up.
Have a blessed Sunday,

I love all your baskets (as well as your YouTube videos), and I especially love this particular basket! I'd like to make something like this for the silverware in my dining room, and for self-serve parties. Did you buy the the internal compartment as one unit, or did you build it yourself?

The wooden divider was purchased as a unit and just sits on the base of the basket. I wove the basket to fit around this divider. The divider had to be in place before I could finish the basket with the handle. Once the handle is in place, there is not enough room to slip the divider into the basket. Go to your favorite basket supply shop and search for dividers and you should come up with several to choose from.
