As women we often find ourselves hauling an extra load--be it books and papers as we head to a gathering, snacks as we watch children practice or perform, our tablet or laptop, knitting/handwork (just in case we find some time during the day), or our current favorite book from the library.
When designing this Shoulder Bag I was thinking of the summer ahead, upcoming travels and family gatherings. In addition, I wanted to use up some short ends of dyed reed that had accumulated from classes and other projects. This basket's size is 3" x 13" x 13" tall and each row of weaving is about 3 feet in length. I'm giving you the Recipe I used, but I encourage you to think of your particular needs, get out your leftovers, add a pound of 5/8" Flat for stakes and some weavers, gather your rim materials and choose the style handle that appeals to you!
Those of you who are Seasoned weavers will know where to go from there. Beginners: If you'll be making a size other than what's given here, I advise you to first decide on the size base you want and then decide on the basket's height. If planning to hold a tablet or notebook, I'd want the base to be 2 inches wider and 2 inches longer than the device. Have fun!
