REPURPOSE | Old maps into a basket
sierraclub.org - sierra magazine - may/june 2011 - repurpose REPURPOSE | Old maps into a basket Paper basket Text and photos by Wendy Becktold Now that you've got GPS in your car and on your smart phone, chart a new course for your paper maps by weaving them into a sturdy, multihued basket. Construction time: About 4 hours Difficulty Level: 4/10 Weaving the basket is easy; the challenge is making the strips uniform. But don't worry about a few imperfections. It's supposed to look handmade. Based on a project by Jane Patrick, creative director of Schacht Spindle Company and author of Time to Weave, from Craft , vol. 5.
