Floral Picnic Basket

Cesta-Floral-de-Picnic-240x300

I have upgraded my hemp basket into a pretty floral picnic basket by adding some crocheted flowers and leaves. You can get the flower and leaf pattern here, it has a crochet butterfly ornament too. Use this basket to carry your crochet or knit yarn outdoors, you can even bring some bread, sandwiches, fruits and drinks for a small picnic or use the basket to collect flowers from the garden, isn’t that a great idea?
