coffee bag basket with a zigzag pattern

Paulig’s Juhla Mokka and New York coffee packets are the same width, so they fit perfectly together in weaving projects that use ring-shaped strips. For this basket, two strips of each of the New York packets have been cut (the upper edge of the packet has been used in another project) and the monochromatic part of the upper edge of the Juhla Mokka packets.

You can see the complete weaving steps in the instructional video:

The coffee bag basket consists of two zigzag layers on the edge, which are woven from different coffee packets, so that a zigzag pattern from the border of two different colors is formed around the basket. The width of the strips cut from the coffee packets is 6,8 cm, which when folded is approx. 2,3 cm. The width of both coffee packages is 15,3 cm. There are 48 New York strips in the basket, or a total of 24 coffee packets. There are 48 pieces of Juhla Mokka strips in zigzag and 24 pieces in the two pieces of the sole, i.e. 72 pieces in total.

The height of the finished basket is 17,5 cm and the size of the base is 21 x 21 cm. With the same model, you can also weave baskets of different heights by reducing or increasing the layers of the sides. One zigzag layer reduces or increases the height of the basket by 10,5 cm. The basket with one zigzag edge would therefore be only 7 cm high, and the edge with three zigzags would be 28 cm. You can also find a narrower version of the same body model on the blog ->

yellow and black coffee bag basket

In the traditional Kulta Katriina coffee bag runs in the middle of the bag horizontally a yellow stripe on a black background. This stripe formed a pattern for this coffee bag basket.

The basket consists of five woven squares, four corner pieces and four triangles. One of the squares is at the bottom of the basket and the other four are on the sides of the basket. The corners form the corners of the basket. The triangles form the top of the basket. The pieces are connected with a gift string and the gift string has also been threaded to the top of the basket to reinforce the oblique edge of the triangles.
