GREAT BEGINNER BASKET WEAVING KIT!
Natural raffia coils beautifully, transitioning organically from one color to another, creating a lightweight unique basket. Learn this wonderful basic basketweaving technique, while not worrying too much about counting or exactness.
Shape your basket however you want from a flat to a curved container. There are so many ways to play with using two colors in your basketry--this free-hand way is a great way to start!
Kit includes enough to make 2 baskets:
:: 6 oz Madagascar Raffia in 2 Colors
:: Sharp Darning Needle
:: Muslin Bag :: Calliope Basket Pattern and Video
Basket measures 7.5" by 2" as shown but this can be variable depending on your desired size and shape. The last one I made was 6" by 1".
