Last week, after I posted and got unpacked from teaching at the Heritage Weavers Fall Event, I realized I hadn’t released the pattern for Painted Paper Trays. Typically, after I begin teaching a new basket I release the pattern. This time I am a week late, but here it is, the pattern for the Painted Paper Trays.
This beautiful little basket is wonderful introduction to weaving with painted paper. The pattern gives clear directions so you can create a distinctive ripple design that continues up the sides. The rim is double lashed with waxed linen. The pattern includes a graph and row by row instructions, as well as information on how to paint and prepare paper for weaving. This little twill basket is 4 3/8” x 4 x 1 ½” high. I will have Painted Paper Tray kits with me at many of my fall events.
Last week, I also finished up the class kits for my fall classes. I had a little helper on Wednesday. Miles was a little under the weather and couldn’t go to daycare, so he hung out with me 🙂 We had lots of snuggle time, read lots of stories, and we cut the last of the paper I had painted in July.
The cutter was already set up, but Miles had to check out all removable parts before we got started.
thanks for reading the Basket Teacher!
