Product Information

Baskets of many shapes and sizes, trays and lamps, may all be made by following the detailed instructions given in this book, originally published in the 1920s.

Basketry is one of the most fascinating of crafts. The possibility of creating an endless variety of baskets in every shape and size makes the work unusually attractive.

Weaving with crepe paper rope and wire is not difficult, as the wire is easily bent into the desired shape, and the rope is soft and pliable. Most of the weaves and stitches done with other materials may also be used for crepe paper rope weaving.

The instructions given in this book will be found helpful for making a variety of baskets, vases, trays and lamps.
