Basket #3 Karen Gramenz

Pattie Hawkins’ Small Stained Glass Windows Tote

All Levels

Patti Hawkins (Kolodziej) is a very wellknown basket designer and

teacher and a friend of mine! When Patti designed this basket, she

was looking for a functional tote that was fairly easy to make but

with some “pizzazz!” You can do the overlays in the same color, in different colors, or in natural (which provides lovely texture). You tell me your color choices for the overlay ( and they will be included in the kit.
