Now that you've got GPS in your car and on your smart phone, chart a new course for your paper maps by weaving them into a sturdy, multihued basket.
Construction time: About 4 hours
Difficulty Level: 4/10
Weaving the basket is easy; the challenge is making the strips uniform. But don't worry about a few imperfections. It's supposed to look handmade.
Based on a project by Jane Patrick, creative director of Schacht Spindle Company and author of Time to Weave, from Craft, vol. 5.
