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

Free Heart Basket Weaving Pattern



First off, I've just got to say that all of you reading this blog are simply the best!  I mean it from the bottom of my heart.  I have a sweet reader, Jane, who sent me this link HERE to a free woven heart basket pattern found at The Basket Maker's Catalog.  Be sure to print off your pattern.  Take a close look at this basket.  Does it remind you of something else you could weave with this similar shape? 

Look below...





Turn my Christmas stocking on it's side with the point of the heel downward.  Isn't basket weaving fun?  With just little tweeks, we can change the look completely from a stocking to a heart.

Thank you so much Jane for sending us the link to the heart pattern.  Now Jane doesn't have a blog or a website for me to share with you, but her daughter does.  Her daughter is a wonderful painter so I'd like to direct you to The Art of Morgan Denise.  I hope you'll take a moment to view some of her beautiful work.
Happy Weaving Everyone,
Nancy
