I saw the idea for making little nesting baskets out of fabric strips at Petals to Picots, which I found via pinterest. Mine don't really fit inside each other very well, but they aren't ending up together in the end. I tried to follow that pattern at first, but ended up loosing count on the stitches and just winging it. It's easy crochet- Just a single crochet all the way around.
My youngest sister sent me a full size sheet with a hole in the middle. Most would not re-gift such an item, but I was pleased to get it and knew just what to make with it. That makes this a remake- sheet to basket. It got cut or ripped in about 1 inch strips. If you sort of zig zag them, you can do the hole piece of fabric in 1 continuous super long strip. To see the zig zag cutting pattern, click on that link above to the original source.
The medium one is on the kitchen counter holding lunch box notes I printed off various blogs I found through pinterest and the tiny one is in Bee's room holding treasures. The biggest was sent back to the sister- who is the proud new resident of a dorm room.
