Plant fiber baskets

I am having a great time using fiber from the yard to make coil baskets. I’m taking the Baskets from the Garden class from Craft School Oz. She has very different fibers available to her of course, but it is really helpful to see how she proceeds with the structure of the basket.

Adding a rim of horseradish fiber to a base of cordage made from iris and day lily leaves.
Interior – the base is made of coiled iris leaves.
