Birch bark basket

We are enjoying the heat wave at the cottage. It is just too hot to stay in town.

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.

Today we are heading back to town. Next task is to plan my sister-in-laws baby shower!
