If you've been reading along with me since last year, you might remember The Pink Pot of Hope Basket, designed by Jennifer Rhodes of Basket Weaving Supplies.
It was a beautiful basket she designed for a customer as a special request, and Jennifer took it a step further by committing to donating $1 for every sale of the pattern to breast cancer research. In case you missed it, here's a photo of the basket I made following Jen's pattern.
A while ago I discovered another pattern Jen has available through her online shop, called the Breast Cancer and Yellow Ribbon Awareness Basket .
This basket is designed by Pati English, and it was designed to honor her own mother.
I purchased that pattern and finally had some time to weave it late last week.
I need to mention that Pati's pattern includes instructions for adding an elaborate handle, but I opted not to put it on the basket. Maybe someday....
I couldn't let October slip away without showing you these two amazing baskets, designed for a very special cause.
And I'd like to dedicate the ones that I have woven to two very special women who battled breast cancer....my beautiful Aunt Shirley, and my husband's wonderful Aunt Katy.
You're memory and your spirit live on in the lives of all those you've touched.
