This little Basket Handbag is named in memory of Marie Levan, Marsha Holm's niece, who lost her 2 year battle with cancer, October 2008, at the age of 37. Marie was a pre-school teacher, a wife and a mother. "She was full of life and love," says author Marsha Holm. "One of her loves was for purses and I think she would have liked this one!"

Author Marsha Holm has made 5 baskets (so far) and she chose some of her favorite materials to incorporate into Marie's Handbag: a wooden base, leather handles and braided seagrass. Thanks, Marsha, for sharing Marie's memory with us!

Tools needed: Scissors or Shears, Pencil, Chip Carving Knife or Hand Plane, Clothespins (spring type), Container to hold water, Measuring Tape, Basketry Packing Tool or Bone Folder, Plastic Twist Ties or Cable Ties, Old Towel, Spray bottle for water, Sandpaper
