Step 2: Fold each piece in half end-to-end. Be sure that the three centre lines are on the outside.
Step 3: Cut on the lines. Hold the folded pattern piece firmly and cut on each of the three lines. Repeat for each pattern piece.
Step 4: Weave, hold one folded pattern piece in your left hand & the one in your right hand. Weave the first loop of the right hand piece inside the first loop of the left hand piece. Weave it over the second loop of the left hand piece, inside the third loop, and over the fourth. Now weave the opposite for the next row.
Step 5: Cut a handle for your basket from a scrap of paper. Make the handle about 1 to 1.5 cm wide by 10 - 12 cm long. Fold the handle in half, and glue inside the basket.
Step 6: Use the 2 in 1 brush glue pen to write your mums name on your basket. Cover in glitter and shake off!
Happy Mothers Day!
