View Full Version : Making woven baskets out of strips of bags

Looking for good instructions on how to make woveen baskets out of potato chip (etc) bags. Have friends saving bags for me. I am looking for a more traditional weave. So far all I have been able to find is one where you cut the bags up like gum wrappers and make a saw tooth like strip which you then sew into a basket. What I'm looking for is the sort that uses the longest possible strips cut from the bags.

Any ideas for books or websites?
