How-To PDF ePattern Scandinavian Basket Weaving


I'm proud to announce a new addition to my Etsy shop SewDanish - Scandinavian Textile Art! A download'able, illustrated tutorial PDF file on how-to weave the lovely traditional Scandinavian baskets found in my shop, is now available here

The 10 page written instruction is written in English, but I'm planning on making a Danish translation available in the near future. You will find 24 black and white step-by-step photos explaining the process clearly. Detailed instructions follow the photos.
You will learn how to make a basic basket. The basic basket can then be used as a starting point for taking the technique a lot further. Over the last year I've taught several basket weaving workshops, where I have tried and tested my instructions, before going 'public'.


I hope you'll have as much fun making the baskets as I have. This is such an old basket weaving technique and I truly believe that it is so important to pass these techniques on, before they disappear.
Please note that I'm very happy for you to sell your finished baskets. The copy right only applies to my written instructions and they may therefore not be shared, copied, distributed, reproduced or published in any form or media without my consent.

Thanks to ExtraPointPress  you also have the option of downloading the basket weaving instructions to your Kindle  from Amazon.com .
