April's Kit - Moroccan style Basket weaving

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;

Rope

20 X embroidery skeins

Tapestry needle

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!
