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,

Crafty Goodness - Crochet Projects

I'm just showing off a drink coaster, top photo, and a kitchen scrubbie, bottom photo, that I made. The spiral scrubbie is a pattern by Judith Prindle and her free pattern can be located HERE. The top photo of the drink coaster is just something I created on my own.
What are you weaving or crafting and creating these days?

Nancy, I've always wanted to try quilting so got half done with a placemat for practice! That was fun! Also have been practicing making basket liners! Your coaster and scrubbie look really good~

Taking care of my recuperating daughter Rachel. Neat little ditties.

I just finished the potato basket from Lyn Siler's "Basket Book." Boy was it challenging! But it turned out pretty good, I think!

Juliana: I would love to learn how to make basket liners. Are you following a pattern, or do you make your own "from scratch?"

Nancy: I really like your coasters. I can knit, but I've never learned to crochet....Maybe one day!

JR, there are a number of places on the web with instructions for sewing liners, but by far the easiest I found is from a video I found online...just google "how to sew a basket liner without a pattern" and look for the Curbly video Podcast! There are several others that aren't too hard either...when you google, you'll probably find them!

Thanks so much, Juliana! I found the video you mentioned, and I'm going to try to make one on my own!
