  1. I LOOOOVE these! I wish I knew how to crochet! My goodness.

  2. Susan says:

    I need to learn how to crochet!! These are adorable <3 them.

  3. Beautifully made crochet, it looks very complicated but I sure would love to know how to make a beautiful crochet like this one.

  4. kelly says:

  5. Tricia says:

  6. DC Sarah says:

    so……..given I have never crocheted a stitch in my life, but would love to learn how so I can make these…..anyone have any suggestions for a good resource/tutorial??! thx :)

    love love these

  7. Ashley says:

    My grandmother used to have these in her home… her variation: use them as cup holders/coasters. No mess!

  8. These are darling! What a neat project – and so much more approachable than crocheting an enormous afghan. I think you’ve just inspired me to relearn how to crochet. Thanks! :)

  9. Debbi S. in Texas says:

    I know the basic chain stitch and I think these would be perfect to practice and learn on as any mistakes will make it more original and still a useable piece

  10. Now these are cute! Unfortunately I am hopeless at crocheting! Maybe I can convince my sister in law to have a go.

  11. Heidi says:

    I can’t help it–I love making crochet bowls! You can see pictures on my site for more ideas!

  12. Teresa says:

    For folks looking to learn how to crochet, I picked up the book “I Can’t Believe I’m Crocheting” (despite the ridiculous title), a hook, and a skein of yarn. Now I’m doing tons of projects and absolutely love it. Good luck!

  13. maya says:

    How cute! Love the pink basket, sweet.

  14. Sarah says:
