A Tisket, A Tasket, We Finished Our Baskets!

Last Wednesday was the bonus class day for our basketweaving class. We all showed up to class on a mission to finish our baskets. And, everyone did! In case you missed it, here is class 1 and class 2.

At the beginning of class 3, our baskets looked very pokey and dangerous and just a little bit like a basket.

So, we cut off some ends and folded them over, put in some handles and wrapped up the edges nice and neat.

And, we ended up with a basket that is neither pokey nor dangerous! A real basket that can hold heavy things! Let us model them for you...

I have decided that my basket's fate it to collect vegetables from my garden. It will work well because when it gets muddy and/or wet, I can just hose it off!

The only addition I plan on making is to create some sort of handle cozy/cover as I find the wood edges a little sharp and uncomfortable on my hands. All in all, I am quite pleased with the outcome and glad to have gained a bit of knowledge about basketweaving.
