yellow basket from brazil coffee bags

The yellow Paulig Brazil coffee bags make a wonderfully lively yellow material for coffee bag weaving. In this basket, the middle part of the bag is used and the back part of the coffee package containing the black text is visible on the outside of the strips. The basket consists of four squares, three triangles and two corner pieces. This gives flexibility to the shape and size of the basket compared to a basket made from only squares.

The upper edge of the basket consists of three triangles, the sides and part of the bottom consist of squares. The two corner pieces form the corners of two adjacent sides. The other two corners are formed by the intersection of the angles of the three pieces.

The corner of the basket formed by the corner piece is clearly the nicest looking when viewed close to the corner formed by the seam of the pieces. However, it is impossible to make a basket of this shape so that each corner has its own corner piece, so the different sides of the basket are necessarily different. However, the difference of the sides in the basket doesn’t interfere with use.

The pieces of the basket are joined using a gift string and the gift string is also threaded to the top of the basket so that the edges of the triangles don’t come loose or loosen. The dimensions of the finished basket are about 21x21x11 cm.
