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,

A Free Basket Weaving Pattern

Updated note:  I am so sorry W.H. Baskets that I mistaked the name of your Bag Catcher Basket as Bug Catcher.  My mind was on other things and it truly was a mistake.  Below I've striked out the word Bug and have replaced it with Bag as it's proper name.--Nancy

Hi Friends,
After all this talk about my robins, which by the way had my pyracanthia bush stripped of berries by 2:00 that afternoon, I saw this adorable basket with a bird house embellishment no less.
The pattern comes to us from W. H. Baskets.  The pattern is called "Bug Bag Catcher Basket" and it has two patterns for different sizes.  You can get the link for it HERE.   It uses a really interesting specialty base that is a semi circle with a hole.  The bases are on sale this month for either $4.00 or $5.00 depending on if you are making the large or small Bug Bag Cathcer Basket.  Very unique and clever basket and even though I say this, it looks to be a beginner basket.  Be sure to visit W.H. Baskets and take a look around.  They sure have some pretty baskets.  One more thing, be sure to print off the pattern because their free patterns change monthly.
Baskets of Blessings,

That's very cool! I love that it has whiskers like a flycatcher. :)

I would really love to make this basket, but I would need to order the base. Does anyone know how expensive shipping is from Canada to the southern US (rough guestimate).

Hi JR, If it isn't too costly to call, I'd just call the company directly and ask them what the shipping would be? I've done this with small orders before to price check with several businesses. It is the small orders that can kill you sometimes when it comes to s/h.

I love WHBaskets as a supplier. I even drove from Ottawa to Toronto, stayed there, and then drove on to Port Rowan to visit Wanda and her store. The quality of her wood products is excellent in particular.
