a first for me: woven basket

This week on the Spellbinders Blog I created a basket made almost entirely out of cardstock and embellished with Spellbinders die templates.  Although this weaving thing was basically a first for me (not counting the woven placemat I made in grade 1) I did have fun watching it come together. Our girls are very impressed - even to go as far as saying I weave like the ladies in South Africa.  They mean the Zulu weavers who are in my opinion the masters of weavers.  I had to laugh because my children do have elevated opinions on Hubs and my capabilities!!! but for now I will take that compliment and keep practicing until maybe someday I too can weave like the Zulus!!

I have instructions on how to make this basket on the Spellbinders Savvy Saturday~Easter Woven Basket blog post.

Have a wonderful Saturday - the weather is warming so we will spend part of today outside!


  1. Beautiful basket. I wouldn't have known this was your first time weaving (well since 1st grade). Your colors are a wonderful choice for this project.

  2. Absolutely FABULOUS in EVERY way!

  3. The weaving on this basket is truly amazing--holy cow! Gorgeous basket!! I love all the little details.
