Midelino Cane Coil Globe Cup
Measure out two sections of Midelino cane coils and glue it in the middle point. I am using wood glue. Keep the sections in place with small butterfly hair clips so that you can continue to weave while the glue dries.
Weave in another cane section following an over and under pattern
Clip the connection point while it dries
Continue to weave the cane strips in a ball shape but do not complete the globe. The sphere shape should be open at one end to form a cup
The cane strips are flexible and can easily bend into position
Cut the ends at a sharp angle
