Pine Needle Baskets

This is a small Pine Needle Basket
I collect Pine Needles throughout the year and then dampen
They are easy to work with
Pine Needles dried and Sinew.
You take small bunches of needles and create a round bottom
wrapping with Sinew for Security
Then you add small bunches all they way around and up in order to acheive a
small basket
This one is not liquid proof
But they can be made this way
I like the black sinew as it stands out
also Raffia may be used and dyed
Creating nice tight basket that can be used for Rings, Earrings,
or Other Small trinkets
