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

What I'm Working On Wednesdays - Woven Santa Boot, Basket Making, Basket Weaving


My Santa boot. I love my Stanta boot!
I really enjoyed weaving this. It is woven on a wooden elliptical base. The author of this pattern is Julie Deen and I was privileged to test the pattern for her. I know the pattern is for sale on her website, Deen Homestead Basketry, as well as through other basket weaving suppliers. I'm going to get some long candy canes and put them in my boot and set it by my front door! One more thing, I wish the photo showed it better, before weaving the red laces in, I sprayed the boot with gold glitter spray. It just sparkles in person!
What are you working on this week?
Blessings,
Nancy

Hi Nancy, I'm working on a horsetail (plant) basket. The base is bulrushes and there will be willow stakes and then horsetail weavers. I hope to incorporate an antler into it, also. Wish me luck!
Love,
Nancy

Oh my gosh! Adorable!!
I stopped weaving when my youngest was born (he's 17 now) and I'm ready to get back into it.

This boot will be on my list!
