Basket for Basket Bingo
The basket bingo is just a few days away and I’ve been assembling prizes for the “balloon burst”. I had a small silver-plated jewelry box and wanted to put it in a basket, but I didn’t have one small enough.
So I decided to crochet one using thin fabric strips that I’d unraveled from my rag rug (see my older posts about that adventure).
Anyway, it only took about 1 – 1.5 hours to make this small basket. The nubby look is ‘cos I tied the ends of the strips together instead of gluing them so they stick out.
Also, I braided the handle and tied it to the basket instead of crocheting it. I’d like to get more decorative, funky handle ideas for baskets (and same for bows).
