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

This is a fun basket with a matchstick rim. The spokes are 1/4" flat reed that I've placed side by side. Then as I wove up the sides of the basket I split them into their individual parts. I just used some wild colors that I had on hand so I call this basket my "Fiesta Basket" and I get it out at Easter time.
Have a blessed Sunday,

I love this basket! The colors are so vivid! Is that chase weave at the base?

Nancy Jacobs Basketmaster said...

The base is made from tripple twining or three rod wale.

Great colors!

I love how the use of the different colors gave me an "instant tutorial" on how to create this rim. This would be fun for Cinco de Mayo :-)

Bright did it! If the weave on the template will be more accurate.
