So I didn’t find a direct design for a picnic basket, but I did find a great instructional by flowerclown via YouTube for weaving a wall, basket or flag.
I used the weave design and from one link, one balloon tied together and twisted in middle, divided it up by four, repeated that 5 times to make for height for 2 sides of picnic basket. I did the same only just divided a link by 2 repeated 5 high and connected them to the other sides.
I made a 2 balloon braid for handle and made lift able flaps for top of basket. A middle balloon separates and is centered in basket. Looped with pinch twists, the flaps are woven from the loop’s leftovers. Make a loop around middle pole in basket and make a pinch twist to keep loop in place. Make 3 of these. Then with the rest of the balloon from the pinch twists, weave a flap.
That makes it so you can lift up the flap like a real picnic basket. I need to work with 160’s so that things will look neater and more trim for loops and perhaps flaps.
I have 6 loops, 3 for each side, and each set of 3 facing different directions.
Is this making any sense? I sure hope so, lololololol. Technical explanations are not my forte, lololololol. At least I didn’t say thingie over and over, lololololol.
Anyway. Here is my figured out by myself, with the flag weave technique i learned from flowerclown, picnic basket design.
This design took about 46 to 47 balloons to make.
