Making Lavender Baskets

Lavender baskets are fun to make and last year-round. Today I made a small lavender basket and photographed each step so I could share the 'how to's' with you. This basket is nearly done, although it needs tied off with a needle and thread and I didn't have one along with me at the cabin today. The lavender is from home, although I have planted lavender at the cabin as well. At 4,500 feet above sea level, the cabin lavender survives the winter's well and grows abit more each summer, but they are still stingy with blooms and only sent a few stalks up each year. This little lavender basket is still fresh, but I'll be hanging it to dry so it can maintain it's shape and color.
