Willow bark baskets

As you've seen from a previous post I stripped some willow to use the bark and the wood.
The bark was too nice to take down into cordage so I thought I'd make a couple of small berry collecting baskets from it.


So bark was stripped all in one piece


An elipse scored in the bark to allow it to bend


Started making cordage from lime bark to tie it all together


But realised I didn't have enough so had to resort to shop bought jute instead


All tied together


And ready for berry picking season.
