Pink Baskets and Teddybears

My basket creating continues. This time I made three lace edge baskets for a customer of mine in Ohio. She custom ordered two country pink baskets and one off white basket. I made them in 9" width and 5.5" height to fit her daughter's nursery.

As you can probably see in the photos, I took the photos in my baby boy's nursery (due in November). I will need to make some blue baskets for myself now that I saw how well they fit to cubbies in his closet. You can fill the baskets with all sorts of cuteness, little socks, mittens, caps etc. And why not use these baskets on the changing table (I don't have one yet, have to get busy...)

This basket can be found in a smaller size in my shop Henna's Boutique. To custom order a bigger size or different color, contact me thought my shop.

Flower petals and rose cups

I have been working on a crochet rug with flower petals and it has been taking me a long time. The rug is still not finished, but I fell in love the look of the flower petals that I decided to try to use them differently.

I wanted to make placemat and coaster sets with a flower petal edging. It proved to be a real neat detail in my otherwise very simple placemats and coasters. The sets were a lot of fun to crochet and I think they turned out gorgeous. They bring a little bit of romance to my dining table, the rose cup setting might help a bit too. 

You can find both of the sets at my etsy shop Henna's Boutique

Custom crochet storage lace edge basket

Here is a perfect and beautiful little crochet storage solution for a nursery. You can store all kinds of little necessities in this basket. I especially love it when my unborn son's first teddy bear gets to hang out in it.

This lace edge basket in the photos is traveling to a customer of mine who ordered it in robin egg color. The size of the basket is 8.5" x 5.5". You can find the basket in off white in my etsy shop in a slightly smaller size. This basket can be made in pretty much any size and in multiple colors. You can contact me through the blog or better yet through my etsy shop.
