Mini Williamsburg Basket

With Spring around the corner, it is time to weave some baskets with bright colors.  

This mini Williamsburg Basket  measures 3" by 3.5" at the base.  The sides rise to 4" and flairs to a 6" by 7" oval at the top. 

The handle features a triple weave using fine cane.

February Guild Weave

What better way to spend a frigid February Saturday than at a basket weave with Central Pennsylvania Basketweavers Guild members.

The Raisn'Cane basket pattern by Jeanne Dudley features three  woven sides and one open weave side with cane inserts.  I chose to overlay the cane on smoked reed.   The brown is visible on the inside of the basket.  The basket has built in handles on two sides.  

The over all size is 12" x 12" x 12"
