Autism Awareness Craft: Basket Edition!

A little over a month ago, I found this wonderful autism awareness puzzle piece ribbon at Wal-Mart and HAD to have it! I have a lot of ideas running through my head on projects to make with it, so look for those in the future! But first, I want to share with you my first project!!



My wonderful mother in law weaves baskets and offered to teach me to make one while we were visiting! It was in some ways much easier than I had thought, after I got the hang of it! I hope to make more in the future. For this basket, I had originally thought of making something for my guest room and incorporating a bit of pink into it. Then I remembered about this ribbon and had to give it a shot, and I'm glad I did! I loved how it turned out. After getting it back home, I added some twine and a few puzzle pieces left over from my Autism frames to give it a little something extra. This might be my favorite craft project so far!
