This self-paced basketry course will teach you the skills and techniques to complete a Mini Melon Basket. Using video, visual, and written instructions, Brittany will walk you through using rattan reed and basketry tools to make a handwoven basket. The mini melon is a straightforward exploration of ribbed basketry, a style employing ribs that run diagonally across the basket. The melon basket is named due to its rounded melon-like shape. It's the perfect size to collect summer tomatoes, hide the remotes, or use as a gift basket. 

This is intended for intermediate basket weavers. If you are new to basket weaving, consider taking Brittany’s Cross-Stitch Napkin Basket Course to learn foundational basketry techniques before attempting this basket.

Dimensions: 10 inches in diameter 

  • Please note that every basket will turn out slightly different depending on the person weaving. No two baskets are identical, as this is a handcrafted piece, and each weaver will approach the process slightly differently. The dimensions included here are the intended outcome but may be altered or turn out slightly smaller or larger.
