Backpack baskets

I have been wanting to do this style for years!

To make, you measure the reed and soak it in water then form the base. The weavers are then formed to shape the basket as you go (kind of tricky). Then you just add the belting.


  1. These are wonderful baskets! I use the green straps that are used to hold lumber in bundles on the huge trucks when they deliver them to the stores. They throw those plastic straps away. Those are the wide ones. The narrow ones I use are newspaper bundling straps. The red ones I get are white. They are used by the lumber yard to tie up lumber for deliveries to the consumers. They throw them in the garbage as well!
