Birchbark Mini Container with Quillwork

This mini Birchbark basket features Porcupine Quill designs on the sides.   The crafter used Porcupine Quills to hold the container together.  He used Blue Porcupine Quills to create a simple design on both sides of the basket.  Then he attached a band of Sweetgrass to the top edge.  The crafter braided fibers to create a carrying handle.
