My dad likes to joke I majored in Underwater Basket Weaving in college.
So on my recent trip to Fiji you can imagine how excited I was to see Basket Weaving on the activities list!
My new crafting room:
Basket Weaving attendees: Hannah (age 6), Luke (age 4) and me!
I had to BEG them to let me participate.
Apparently it was more of a showing, not an instruction.
No, I promise, I can do this. I'll be good. It's ok.
No! You do, I'll watch and figure it out and follow along and weave with you.

After a lot of minutes, I convinced Nagu to let me weave.
Inspired by Bottega Venetta.
My basket, laying out... getting a tan.
I carried it around proudly as a purse.
I made two pinwheels for friends to take home to their kids! Fiji is not exactly known for it's shopping.
