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 - Woven Gift Bag Basket

Hi Friends,
Over the years I've woven a dozen or so of these cuties. I originally found the pattern back in the 1990's in "Just Patterns," a basket weaving magazine. I'm sorry, but I'm not sure who the original author of the pattern is. Now I just weave the bag basket in whatever size I need.
The handle for the gift basket is seagrass that is incorporated into the rim. The printed design is a printed paper ribbon that I wove into the basket. The design that says "Merry Christmas" on the front of the bag is a Christmas ornament. The entire thing is sprayed with gold glitter.
What a fun way to give a gift.
Have a blessed Sunday.

What a pretty holiday basket! Are the holly and berries decoupaged?

I love how you did the handles with the seagrass! That's clever and pretty!

The holly and berry design is just printed on a paper ribbon that I wove into the basket.
