Class #31 – Desert Breeze

Desert Breeze starts by weaving a filled base. Techniques include start/stop weaving, twining, triple twining with a step up, weaving a cross stitch, using overlays and shaping. The colors are a space dyed mix called Santa Fe, rust, smoked and natural. Pretty leather braided handles and a unique embellishment complete this basket. This basket is large so it will be useful wherever you choose to use it!
