January ‘21 Pattern

Posted by Joanna on 5 Comments

The Painted Round Basket was designed as an antique reproduction of an old basket found in a New England cottage. The rim has an extra trim piece lashed with flat reed and nailed in place with small brass tacks as was custom in old-time basketry construction. It is then finished in a three-step painting technique that can be done to match your home’s primitive decor.

Thank you for keeping us weaving, month after month, year by year. I do my best to try your patterns every month. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Love the pattern, thank you!  I am finally making a market basket, that I have earmarked to stain a chocolate color then paint the outside a primitive color.  I am excited & apprehensive all at once, but I keep reading your tutorials!

I am new to this site, so when I came across your post, I tried to download the pattern, but can’t get it to down load.  What do I need.

Hi Joyce, you need to be certain you are using a device that reads .pdf files ... probably not a phone.  Do you have a computer you can try on?

Thank you.  Got it.
