Chunky crochet basket-I love making these. Make whatever shape and size you want, find something to fit inside snugly and cover that thing with plastic wrap and then spray the crocheted basket with liquid starch and let dry.
podkins: Oh. This is just too perfect. Found again at Himiko (no sekai). Himiko crocheted this little blanket called the Sunshine Day blanket (pattern by Alicia Paulson). I love EVERY LITTLE THING about this!
