This project started as a crochet circle which at some point was going to be a soft rug to put in my walk-in closet. Then in my mind it turned into a base for a basket. And I kept crocheting until it turned into a … basket. 😀 I had some left over yarn so I added some crochet flowers. Once the basket was done, I decided to add the lining. I had a couple of cheerful pieces of fabric from some remnants I had picked up at the fabric store. And here it is… 😀 a basket with lining for my yarn.
PS. The basket was inspired by a project I saw on Pinterest by Red Heart Yarns and I had big skein of yarn similar to the Red Heart Baby Blanket yarn (I don’t remember the name of it exactly, but I got it at Michael’s on sale). And the lining was my creation – a circle for a base and a rectangle sewn to it for walls. It was supposed to be folded over the edge of the basket but the fabric was too narrow 😀 So I hemmed the edge and sewed it to the basket. Yes, I actually put the basket edge and lining on my sewing machine and attached the two together. 😀
What a ‘happy’ basket
😀 thank you 😀
Great. Love it when something just ‘happens’. Real creativity!
It feels so rewarding, doesn’t it?! 😀
Stunning. So bright and colourful. Great idea. 🙂
Thank you 🙂
This is so cute! What a lovely idea for storage – I keep my leftover yarn rather unceremoniously in freezer bags and plastic bags.
I do too! LOL But now I am kind of hooked on making baskets 😀 I think I’ll start making some with lids so I can close them up and hide my yarn stash 😉 hihihi 😀
It is true creativity when you can let one project turn into another, and what a beautiful result!
So true! Thank you 🙂
