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,

Feature a Friend Friday - Kelly Lynch

Dear Friends,
I'd like to introduce you to Kelly Lynch from Mexico. Kelly found me on YouTube and decided to weave her very FIRST basket and it is made from cereal boxes and grocery sacks. She says they don't have recycling in her country so she is glad to find a use for items that would get thrown away.

Kelly finds this to be relaxing and states that she likes how it makes her feel connected to women who have gone before her.

Thank you so much Kelly for sending me your photos to share. I LOVE this recycled green basket. I think your first basket is fabulous!!!!

Kelly has a website over at The Rabbit Hole which is a treasury of Alice In Wonderland items. My children have seen the new movie and loved it. Be sure to visit her site to follow the rabbit and enter into the hole.

Baskets of blessings everyone,

Wow, that is too cool. I would love to get her instructions. This would be a great project for my kids for Earth day in April. That would be a great item for Show and Tell.

Are you enjoying the Spring Break?

@CJ - I just followed Nancy's easy instructions on YouTube for the Receipe Basket. Instead of the reeds - I cut 3/4" strips of cardboard from cereal or cracker boxes. Instead of the thinner reed - I cut 1/4" strip of cardboard. Instead of reed lacing, I used 1 1/2" strips of grocery bags and twisted them for strength, then laced the top of the basket. It was fun and easy using Nancy's videos.
