This gathering basket is made using a 12 x 14 D handle and double wall construction. The interior wall is woven in smoked reed and then the outer was woven over it. The inner wall becomes a self mold for the outer wall. Double wall baskets are very sturdy and allow for different color patterns to be used. Very fittingly, in the photo Lee is using this for gathering Bittersweet!!

I made these baskets for my Daughter when she was expecting her first child. She had a nice book shelf and intended to use it to store books, diapers, etc in the baby's room. She asked if I could make some baskets for her "like the ones they have in Pottery Barn". All 5 baskets have custom made rectangular slotted wooden bases. The two larger baskets have sponged pottery handles on the rim in the hand hold spaces. The 3 smaller baskets have over wrapped rim handles accented with dyed reed. These now reside in the play room for all 3 of my grandchildren and are sturdy enough to hold wooden blocks & all sorts of construction toys.

When my first grandchild was born, I saw this as an opportunity to get creative and weave some things for new Mom and Baby. This basket was made using an odd rectangular base I had, about 4" x 10". The sides are about 8" tall. The Iron handle, end to end had curved rim extensions that help the end shaping. This has been very handy on the side of the changing table.
