“What is it Wednesday” #53

Howdy do, Friends!

Below is this week’s mystery. You know what to do—please leave us a comment with your guess, and we will post the answer (and your guesses) this Friday.


A-Tisket, A-Tasket

While at the Craft and Hobby Association trade show back in January, we had the opportunity to check out Clover’s clever new Basket Frames. They gave us a quick tutorial, and we new that this was yet another product that we needed to share with you.

The same principles of weaving are applied to this instruction, yet the skeleton of the basket is supplied, so all you to need to is supply your favorite fabric strips, ribbons, or other fiber to personalize your basket.


We have also created the tag below for you (drag to your computer desktop) to print in color on cardstock. The tag will print to be approximately 2 3/4″ x 4 1/2″. Cut tag out, trim with buttons, or rick rack (if you’d like), punch a hole, and tie onto your basket. Super easy, and fun!

You may also order Clover’s Basket Frames online, here, if you aren’t able to find them in your local craft store. They come with two frames per package, and are available in oval, round, and square shapes. The small size for the round basket is 4 3/8″ x 2″, and the large basket size is 7″ x 2 3/4″. (These are approximate sizes, but if you ask Noelle or me for an opinion, we think the large is more doable for the spring bunny to leave us sweet confections in! :-))

Speaking of hopping… hop on over to You Tube to watch Clover’s instructional video, and see for yourself how easy it is to create your own basket.

And without further ado, here is the basket tag for you to print from your desktop:
