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 - Basket Weaving - Pattern Testing
I recently tested a basket pattern for Cheri Parker. I wove her "Bell Bottom Basket" pattern. This is a sweet pattern with a double base. A surprise inside the base is that it contains jingle bells! I chose not to include the handle on my basket but the pattern has a beautiful decorative handle design. Right now I'm using this basket in my kitchen to hold my utensils like spatulas and wooden spoons. It is the perfect size for those items and sits near my stove (but not too near). This and another pattern she has written titled a "PS3 Game Basket" are now available through Basketpatterns. Please be sure to visit and view her beautiful work. The "Bell Bottom Basket" is an intermediate level.
Have a blessed Sunday.
