April's Kit - Moroccan style Basket weaving
This month we dreamed up perhaps one of our most niche crafts yet!
Inspired by the beautiful patterned Berber baskets of Morocco, we decided to give this coiled rope weaving technique a Makerly style twist (we made it a lot smaller, because OMG, it takes ages!)
This kit included;
20 X embroidery skeins
Pom Pom's and Fringe
Some themed charms and beads
Some Moroccan mint tea, to help keep you going!
8 Hours. I'm not kidding, it took 8 hours to make one of these tiny little baskets.
But you know what? I don't know about you but this is by far my favourite type of craft. The sense of accomplishment you get when you complete a project that had you hunched and squinting over a tangled web of thread for evening after evening, is the best!
We also included some themed charms and beads in this months kit. What did you use yours for?
If you like the look of this craft, and have a bit of time on your hands, you can still purchase a kit over in our store
