Diagonal Weave Basket
This is my very first diagonal weave basket. The basket is basically two layers of backlit vinyl tarp at right angles to each other. Each piece of vinyl is fringed at a 45 degree angle to the basket edge base as shown in the diagram. After weaving I secured the ends with clips and glue. I finished off the basket with another piece of vinyl used as trim with more glue.
I put the .svg file here if you are interested in trying this project. The file is also on Craftedge in the SVG files area, boxes and borders section.
I use Cricut Expressions to cut out the vinyl, Sure Cuts a Lot software to set it up. I also use UHU glue stick to anchor the vinyl to the cutting mat.
