I Got The Basket Bug Now!

Remember the basket tutorial One Inch Minis' http://1inchminisbykris.blogspot.com/
posted a few days ago....Yeah! Well, now I hooked on making baskets! LOL.

Well, let me tell you the story! Remember this dresser?? Kim from http://flowerkim.blogspot.com/ had suggested I make baskets to go in the dresser, and I couldn't agree more. So when I saw the tutorial, I thought how perfect! So, I made one, painted it instead of staining it.......and really liked it. Then I decided to make a couple to go on the bottom shelf.....So I 'wove' 2 up, and realized they were too little, so I made them into one inch square baskets (the 2 on the top shelf)...... Then I made 2 more (they're the ones in the bottom picture)....and they were too big. So, determined to get 2 baskets made that fit, I made the 2 you see one the bottom shelf of the dresser! Now that I have 7 baskets.....LOL...I gotta figure out what to do with them.

.....After I realized these were too big, I added the handles......I also aged the bottom one.


So............Now I gotta find something new to keep my mind busy...maybe I need some smaller baskets?! LOL
Until Next Time!

Hahaha....getting them just right can be addictive! But now you have a bunch and you can fill them with vegetable and flowers and towels for the bath...lots of things. Your chest of "baskets" looks very nice....and very original!

I really like how you set up the dresser with all the knick knacks and the baskets. I love this tutorial and will start making this baskets too if they fit into my scene. It's wonderful how you can make them any size you want. Great job, Katie!

Katie- they look fabulous!!! I love them in the dresser- the whole scene looks just so darn cute! I finished my mini swap this week, so this weekend I'm going to try to make a cute little paper birdhouse for me! Maybe I'll try some baskets too :)

Wow they look great Katie...I love the coloring on them.

I've though about making some planters like this but never have the time.
