I have been working on a basket for a wedding shower gift and took a break when I realized that this basket would be great Easter basket. Easter-y but useable as a multipurpose basket year round.

So I whipped these up on Thurs and Friday before Easter:


I basically used the pattern at Red Heart:http://www.redheart.com/files/patterns/pdf/LW4085.pdf.
I just altered the size and handles.

The duckie face I made up as I went. It was late at night and I don’t remember exactly what I did. The handle is a piece of wire that I encased between two strips of double crochet. I figure that a handled basket would work year round for a baby.

I am thinking that gift baskets might become my thing.
