Thank you for sharing this crochet basket with us. It is so cute when finished. Your instructions were very clear, and easy to follow. I didn't make my basket white though. Mine is yellow! I asked for some bags at the Dollar General Store! They gave me a handful. And it turned out to be the cutest thing!
Thanks again, Barb in Tennessee
