When the piece is fully woven use a glue stick to paste down the tabs around the edges on the front and the back. Don’t worry about the strips that can’t be glued.

Now punch holes along two sides and the bottom. Thread your twine or cord into one of the holes at the top, knot it in place leaving a length of cord for a strap to carry or hang your basket. Now sew the sides and bottom of your basket ending with a length of cord on the other side and knot it at the top.

 Add beads to the cord at the top of the basket and tie the two ends together. You can also add beads to the ends of the cord.


You can cut two shorter lengths of cord and knot them to the bottom of your basket for decoration and a place to add more beads.
