Yesterday I made a stash basket - it was my first one - and I suspect one of many more to come! I first got the idea for this when I saw the ones my friend Helen had made - thanks Helen! They are so useful and really easy to make. I used a Bernat pattern, which I found a little confusing at first (as I do with most written patterns), but once the penny dropped, I realised it was a really simple item to make.
I added a flower embellishment that I made from one of my crochet books, et voila!
I admit, the base turned out too big, even though I followed the pattern to the letter - but I don't mind - the wonkiness adds to its charm.
