Class #36 – Shimmering Waves

Shop in style with this comfy-to-carry market basket. A unique design using Amish crafted wood, the base fits snugly against the hip and the half-split leather handle is comfortable on the arm. Arrow weave triple twine using two strands each instead of one accents the section of dyed reed. Seagrass will be wrapped with colored wire giving the basket its name – Shimmering Waves. Base will be weaver ready.
