I know a different technique to make a basket out of plant material, but it isn't weaving. So probably I won't earn a BB with that ...


What technique are you talking about?  Maybe it would be a fit for the next level badge (Straw level)?


I am talking about 'looping' (nalbinding)

I made my woven basket! My material was brambles, because there's plenty of it around here. And I know since long brambles used to be used for baskets.

transport of brambles on my bicycle

materials and tools needed

thorns, leaves and little branches cut off

cut lengthwise and soft stuff inside scraped out

neighbour's cat came to help

cut in half

started weaving

bottom is ready

almost ready

string I made of plant fiber will be used

basket is ready!

I certify this BB complete!

The last BB for the textile badge. I used new growth twigs and vines from the back yard.  It was difficult to start the basket, my base twigs may have been to thick, but they eventually started to fold up to create the sides.  The basket measured 11' by 5".
