Market Basket with Burlap Accents

Market baskets are very functional.  They can be used to hold and carry a wide variety of items. 

This basket also serves as decorative piece with smoked reed and burlap accents.  A 2" band of maple covered with a burlap strip is woven in the top half of the basket.  Smoked flat oval reed is woven in  a decorative overlay on top of the burlap band.   Burlap formed flowers and twine tendrils  were attached the to front side.

The finished basket measures 10" by 15" with 8" sides.  The handle is 14" high.   
*The pattern is by Sharon Klusmann.
