Burdock baskets

Despite the havoc the wreak on my curly dog's coat (scissors required), burdock creates burrs that are nature's brillo blocks and in no time at all you can smoosh them together to create baskets, bowls, and vases like the one pictured above. We collected these on a walk last week and J and Ava made this together in a few minutes. They just pressed them together.  So beautiful. 

Don't forget to head over to Improv Diary for a dose of actual tutorials and updates on The Great Improv Sewing Tour Stops.  Our book comes out may 1st and we are hitting the road- Colorado, California, Washington DC, NYC, and others.  If you live in any of those places, I hope you'll come to an event.  Like I said, they will be posted on Improv Diary.
