Basket Weaving - Susan's Homeschool Blog

Weaving the sides of a basket is fun, easy, and beautiful, but let me tell you, the bottom is extremely frustrating. It's a lot of work and comes out looking terrible, but at least it's hidden by the beautiful sides. I bought the basket-making kit at a Boy Scout store.
