Procedure

1.Make the base. Arrange Horizontal strips 1, 2, & 3 as shown. Make sure that all of the strips are centered. Glue the Support strips along both sides as shown.


2.Turn over, and glue Vertical strips along both sides as shown. Make sure they are centered.
3.Flip back to the front side. Take two of the vertical strips and weave as shown, alternating over and under then push out to either side.
4.Weave the last vertical strip in the center, taking care to reverse the over and under effect from Step 3.
5.Glue the Reinforcement strips along the top and bottom as shown.

6.Fold all strips upward as shown.


7.Take a weaving strip and place the end behind the second vertical strip and secure with a clip or clothespin. Weave alternately, use clothespins to help keep in place.

8. Slightly fold corners to keep in place.


9. After weaving the first row cut off any excess and glue.
Make sure that the ends are hidden by the vertical strips.
10. Using a new Accent color Weaving strip, start the second row at the 3rd vertical strip on the opposite side of the basket to maintain an even thickness. Weave over and under.

 11. Repeat weaving with the remaining Weaving strips as shown, until 8 rows are completed. Gradually pull the vertical strips to tighten the gaps between the rows.

12. For all of the vertical strips on the outside of the top row, fold inward.
13. Cut off excess as necessary and tuck the ends into the third row from the top. Ends should be unseen.
14. Tuck all the folded strips into the top row.
15. Place the Inner Rim strip between the 10th row strip and the remaining vertical strips for reinforcement as shown.
16. For all of the vertical strips in side of the top row, fold outward and tuck them into 3rd row.
17. Trim one end of the Outer Rim strip to make a point. Insert through every other vertical strip as shown. The weave pattern should be the same as the third row from the top. The end of the Rim strip should be hidden by a vertical strip to maintain a seamless look.
Your basket as shown and it's done!
