Button Basket

Once again the Central Pennsylvania Basket Weavers Guild is weaving and filling baskets with personal care items for local shelter clients.

One of the basket patterns selected to be made was designed by Dianne Kennedy from North Carolina.  The pattern is available for free from   If you are unfamiliar with this site, I encourage you to explore their site and many offerings.

The Button Basket is 6" square with a handle.  I used blue reed for an accent color.  The string of fabric "yo-yos" and buttons are woven around the basket to add a textural embellishment.
