While here, me and my mom have been crafting with burlap and birch bark.
Here is a basket I made with birch bark.
Don't let the image fool you. It's only 2"x2"x2"
I think it actually was harder to make in this size (larger would have been better), but I didn't have enough bark at that point to make it any larger
I have now done some wider straps, but hurt my fingers in the process so could not do the weaving yet :-)
Here are the burlap flowers we made for my mom's wreath.
