The basket you've made is strong enough to support over ten pounds of weight!
Step 8: Weaving the First Layer
Take one strip and place one end behind a rib. Weave it over and under the ribs, going around the base of the basket. It helps to tape the beginning of the first strip to a rib. Once you get to the end of the first layer, stick it under one of the ribs. The first layer is always the hardest so don't give up.
