A Larger Crochet Basket Design

Hello, everyone! How about a glimpse of a larger crochet basket I created? The wavy stitch design is the same one that I used on the baskets in my previous post. This time the dimensions are 7" x 3 1/2".

Picture a lovely beach house, with this basket filled with shells or starfish on the coffee table. I can also see it in a bathroom, filled with hand towels or wash cloths. How do you envision using it in your own home?

Wishing everyone a beautiful Friday and a lovely weekend. I can feel fall in the air!

Hi, Melissa!

Love your label and the soft colors in this basket. It looks beautiful filled with balls of yarn (yarn is so pretty, it should be on display!).

Did you print the label on a page of labels or use label paper and cut it out? I was thinking that once my logo is finished I'd have a stamp (or a couple in different sizes) made so I could make all sorts of labels and tags for things.

Love, love. love this color combo!
As for this in my home, hmm... let me think. I do use baskets or enamel bowls in the bathrooms for hand towels, but this could be great too. Also for beauty products. And what about pebbles or seaglass?? So cool, Melissa! Love these natural and pale shades you're using lately.
Hugs, and many thanks for your presence.
