Crochet Flower Basket
I got the idea today to make a crochet flower basket today when I saw this cute crochet easter basket set in the crochet lounge. I drew a quick sketch and got to work.
My son wanted me to take a picture of our art work so here is my sketch and his Darth Maul guy from Star Wars..
Before I was even finished the crochet flower basket my little girl was trying to claim it as hers, this would make a perfect easter basket, wedding basket, or little girls toy.
My daughter is going to be one happy girl when she wakes up to have a new little crochet flower basket.
