A Little Basket Weaving

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  Get Inspired At An Arts Festival!
Over the 4th of July holiday weekend I walked around the Cherry Creek Arts Festival here in Denver.  I am always inspired and amazed by the creative energy exploding from the booths at these festivals!!!!  There was a beautiful booth filled with incredible basket weavings and forms and I came home wanting to try to basket weave!  I headed straight to YouTube and found this video.  It gave me enough info to improvise with materials that I had (instead of "reeds" I used yarn, felt and even transparency sheets!  My advice?  Get inspired at an arts festival!!!!
