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,

Sloped Gathering Basket

This little basket uses a 4 x 6 D handle.  I use it to hold packages of seed for my garden.  To create the slope up each side, you simply do not weave all the way around the basket.  You only weave from the left and stop at the right.  Each time you do that you move in one stake.  For the rim row at the top which is hidden, I twined with round reed for 2 rows and then lashed the rim onto the twining.
Have a Blessed Sunday,

Wow, you have some beautiful things here! I especially like this one. I don't think I've ever met anyone who makes baskets.

Thanks for stopping by my blog AND for becoming a 'Follower'. I'm really excited, because I love to make new blog friends. :0) I really hope you will come by and visit me again soon. I just became your newest Follower and I look forward to reading more of your blog soon and seeing more of your beautifully crafted baskets.

I hope you are having a wonderful day!
