A-Tisket, A-Tasket . . . A New Crochet (Rag) Basket


I was going through my cabinet of supplies, which also houses the un-finished and forgotten . . .

There were a couple of things I completely forgot about.  This one was still in its circular infancy.  I have no idea what my intentions were.  Perhaps a rug, perhaps a bag, or basket. I just picked it up, chose a strip of fabric and started crocheting – upwards.  Joined other colors/strips as I went, and .  .  . here ya go:

Sharing the love seat with my little froggy friend.  He croaks nursery rhyme songs.  :D

Here are a few pics of work in progress . . .

And a few pics, finished . . .  You can really see the frayed edges of the fabric.  But, I think it adds to the charm.  Eventually it will all work itself out.   These baskets (and rugs) are easy care – machine wash and dry.  They last forever, and ever.  Some of my favorite types of projects.  I prefer to buy the strips pre-cut rather than tearing them, or cutting them myself.  It may cost a bit more, but the fabric is new, and it saves a TON of time.

Now, I want to make another one!
