Baskets From Found Materials Week 5 – Moss and Grass

This week I went back to using natural materials rather than man made and made another tiny basket about 2 inches high. I used hair moss which grows in clumps and has stems up to two foot long. Hair moss grows on wet, boggy ground and so there is an abundance of it on the Isle of Arran where I live.
