Basket weaving hasn’t been so easy with this method: weave around a cardboard frame. Originally, I saw this method in a Japanese craft magazine, I searched around for the template but can’t find it any where locally or online. So, I built it based on my dimension.
I recall an infomercial a few years back for a little plastic triangle that stuck in a corner, between two walls, to make a small corner shelf. I don’t remember the exact name of the product, but I do remember that the commercial exhausted all the obvious self/shelf puns: “shelf esteem,” “shelf confidence,” “shelf defense,” “shelf-employed,” etc., etc. So I’ll forgo the obvious opportunities this topic offers for shelf-referential humor and just get down to business.
