    I've not made these before, but I just Googled woven reindeer and found this... http://www.ourveggiegarden.com/CraftsReindeerOrnament.html

    Thanks Becky, you got closer than I did. I found a 3D one but nothing woven. It looks tricky! I appreciate your help.

    I hope you can figure that out better than I can. It made my eyes cross. Ha ha ha. It would have helped if they color coded each strip of reed in the drawings. I tried editing it in Windows Paint program (which you can find through your start menu) to change the colors using the paint bucket tool and it did work, but it too would take awhile to change it all. It would probably be easier to change it to the lightest black and white effects in Windows Gallery Edit, print it and then change the colors using markers or colored pencils. IF you need the help. My old eyes are so good at keeping track of things that small anymore.

    @ Lisa That is Swedish Basket Weaving, you might find a pattern in some of the book that have been published. Hope this helps. I like the pattern that Becky posted. good luck.

    Lisa, can you use some type of cookie in stead of basket weaving? just a probably dumb thought :(

    That's okay @Kate Sullivan I've missed things others have written too. Makes me wonder where my mind was at that moment.

    @Nancy G I could use a cookie cutter but I would really like the woven one:)
