Basket making

My daughter needed a basket for a school Easter egg hunt so we made one from grass and lime bast.

The raw materials, hay and lime bast. 

Making a start, wrapping the hay with the lime bast to form a crude rope. 

Making progress; coiling the grass rope into shape and stitching together with more lime bast. 

The finished article with a simple handle.

We've been making some simple leather pouches for flint and steel fire sets too;
