This large Tote is designed for a day at the Track or any adventure of your choosing. The basket itself is woven with a Shaker solid bottom technique and built using the simplest of weaving patterns.
The sturdy straps and rim are made of top quality bridle leather making it the perfect tote for heavy items.

Students will learn basic basket weaving techniques as well as the basics of leather riveting. The strap is a combination of bridle leather and horse tack hardware. This basket is finished with a bridle leather rim that is lashed with waxed linen.

  1. Hi Bev! I am in northern Vt and unable to attend your workshop b/c of the distance. Do you sell the pattern and supplies for your Saratoga Tote Basket? If so, where can I purchase it?

      Thanks for your interest but I don’t sell my patterns or sell kits at this time.
      I’m so sorry,
      Beverly
