The Central Pennsylvania Basket Weavers Guild February workshop featured a Basket Shopping Cart. Guild member Becci Melcher lead the session. We worked from the Basket Buggy Shopping Caddy pattern by Pam Feix (www.feixbaskets-crafts.com )
|Step 1 - attach the frame to base|
we first attached a slotted wooden base to the frame.
|Step 2 - Insert spokes|
Forty-two spokes were evenly spaced and inserted around the base. After the spokes were glued in place some members followed the pattern as written. Other members used reed, colors and patterns of their own choosing while following the basic form of the pattern.
I am much happier with my second attempt. I changed the color scheme and included bands of burlap and navy ribbon for accents.
