Little Things

I've been thinking about production for the summer season and making lists. Lots of lists. It got a bit overwhelming so I decided to start with the smallest project.

I love weaving these little birch bark baskets and forget about them sometimes when all of the BIG baskets are on the go. I'm pretty crazy about wax linen too so I have experiemented with some paper weaving. I used the back cover of magazines and got some nice colors from the various ads.

The mauve basket in progress is an olay lotion ad. Think I'll add some glass beads to the next one. A little bling to go with the bark!

Hi Shari,

Love the little birch bark baskets! I've made several too in the past, cutting my strips by hand. What tool do you use to cut yours? There has to be an easier way! Cathryn

Hey Cathryn! I use my exacto knife and a metal ruler. The bark can be finicky sometimes so I always cut lots of extras.
