My grand aunt was able to make baskets. She made the body of the basket from sally switches. She put four strong sally switches on each corner of the basket and one stick in the middle of the basket. She always pulled the sally switches a long while before she made the baskets. She made the bottom of the from thin sally switches. The baskets she made lasted longer then the baskets made now.
