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

Share a Basket Sunday

This is another of my favorite "ribbon baskets" where I take one row of weaving out and replace it with a ribbon. The handle is a stake from reed and wrapped to give it extra strength.
Have a blessed Sunday.
Love,
Nancy

Is this a Williamsburg basket? How pretty! If you don't mind, I think I'm going to borrow your idea here and substitute organza fabric for one of the weavers on my next basket. :) With the pretty bow and the shape of the Williamsburg basket, it kind of reminds me of the bonnets that the women used to wear in colonial Williamsburg. This is really a nice aesthetic for this type of basket!

Technically it's not a Williamsburg, although it does sort of have that flaired shape to the base. The handle is made from reed and it is just one of the spokes of the reed that is longer and overlaps itself and back into the base. Glad you like it!
