Paper String Basket with Lining

I tried my hands at weaving a basket.

Material used is made of 12 paper string sticking together; bought from Daiso. You can cut or tear according to the thickness you want. There's a instruction that comes with it, however in Japanese. I didn't follow according to the illustration provided and did the basket my own way.

The end product is not perfect but it will do for a first timer. However, I did find the inside of the basket really ugly. Hence, I did a lining for it to cover the ugliness up.

A roll of this weaving band can make a basket slightly bigger than what I did as I still have some leftover after finishing the basket.
