Basket weaving


I have always wanted to weave a basket. Ever since I was little I knew it couldn’t be that difficult and yet I never understood why they were so expensive. So I was in a hobby store again (there was a relatively bad wreck with the remote controlled helicopter and it needed new parts again) and they had basket weaving kits. So for $13.99 I bought one and learned how to make a potato basket. It’s true they are incredibly time consuming, however I was right in thinking that they aren’t difficult at all. If you’ve got a couple hours free(this took me between 5 and 6) one weekend I suggest you buy a kit if you’re interested. It was a lot of fun and the finished product looks awesome. My fiance even said it looked like something his mother would spend upwards of $100 on! πŸ™‚

Anyway, the finished product!

I don’t mean to sound proud, but I think it’s pretty good for never making a basket before in my life!

I enjoy crafts, cooking, movies, and a wide variety of other things which I'm sure you'll hear about soon enough. I'm new to the blogging experience and decided to give it a go after using Stumble Upon for the last few months. I've gotten some great ideas from a variety of blogs and figured I should do my part to spur the imagination and creativity of other stumblers like me. :P
