You can make a walking stick basket to carry some things in that you gather. (its called a mushroom hunters basket); You use a long enough limb with a smaller branch or two off the side of it and curve the smaller one or two in a circle and weave from there to fill in. You could use spruce roots, grapevine or willow for example for the weaving. It makes a nice walking stick basket. You have to fill in more later as when you use fresh material it shrinks. Sorry I don’t have a picture of one (I sold the one I made and it isn’t the season here to make another.)
You could also make a fish trap basket. Seems to me that basketry is one more skill good to have.
