Homeschooling: Basket Craft


When my daughter was reading the Kaya books (from American Girl), there was mention of basket-making. So we set out to make a simple basket ourselves. This was our first attempt and it turned out well (though I did much more of the work than she did). We used 4 feet of rope, which when all wound up makes a rather small basket. It's a good size for holding small things - like loose change. So we will make another - with a different color yarn and more rope, to make a bigger basket.

We started with 4 feet of rope (bought at Lowes for about 30 cents per foot). The only supplies you need are yarn, rope and a yarn needle.

Here is our finished product.
