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 Basket Weaving Pattern

Hi Friends,
I want to direct you over to W.H. Baskets to pick up their free pattern this month.  It's called a Buffet Basket and uses beautiful braided seagrass and swing handles.  I wove a basket similar to this a number of years ago.  I lined it with a Winnie the Pooh fabric and filled it with baby items as a baby gift for a friend.  It turned out darling.  I'll have to search and see if I can find an old photo of the one I wove.  The swing handles add a lot to this sweet basket.  The two wooden handles give strength to the base.  It also makes it easier to store because you can fold the handles down when needed.  W.H. Baskets keeps their free patterns up only for a month and we are almost to the end of July so get there soon and print it off.
Happy Weaving,
Nancy
