Pink Saturday: A Basket Full Of . . .

April 17, 2010

.
Flowers! .    .    . ok, ok, ok I mean flower hair clips 🙂
.

But see, these were my teeny weeny Easter baskets. I know, Easter celebration has already passed. Then again, every Sunday is called “little Easter”, right? And I think what Easter means for us should always be remembered anyway.
.


.

Now, back to these baskets. It’s all about egg hunting. To make a little twist in the hunt, I crocheted a few of these baskets and placed a special egg with the Easter message. Whoever gets to find them will receive something extra 🙂
.

I crocheted the night before the hunt and when Sunday came, I forgot to take pictures of them! Just imagine, instead of hair clips, an egg is placed inside :-). It was fun!
.

The kids kept the baskets but since I still have yarn left I thought maybe I can make one (or in this case, two) for me to keep.
.


.

How to make them: The basket is just a series of single crochet(SC). I started with 8 SC on the first round). And then you just increase the number for every round until you can fit the egg inside. This one has a series of: (yellow) 8 – 16 – 24 –  (pink) 24 – 24 – (yellow) 24. Lastly, do a series of chains for the handle. You can make it as big as you like to hold some stuff! 🙂
.

P.S. Challenge: I’m introducing you to Tricia of Altered Schoolmarm. I remember her and the “shoe tree” where members of their church donated shoes for children. Oh and there’s also the Pink Saturday Easter tradition which I thought was fun and a little funny 🙂

    HAPPY PINK SATURDAY
    I LOVE THE EASTER BASKETS…MY CROCHET ABILITY IS NOT VERY GOOD…WHAT HAPPENS IS I CROCHET TIGHTER AND TIGHTER AS I GO AND I MAKE AN AFGHAN SO HEAVY YOU THINK CARPETING IS ON TOP OF YOU OR IT IS SO TIGHT AND LITTLE A FLEA COULD WEAR IT.
    BUT YOU HAVE INSPIRED ME TO TRY.
    HAVE A BLESSED, PINK WEEKEND.

    I like your term “little Easter” a lot! And your little baskets are so sweet. Maybe one day I will learn how to crochet. It’s something you can take with you and do anywhere and everywhere. Come back and visit me on May 1st and you will see where the little stone rock trail leads. 🙂 xoxo HPS

    The baskets are really cute. And could be used for so many things. I’ve not had little ones around for egg hunts for some time but I do so enjoy the season to celebrate the Resurrection. And as per your comment on my page, yes, I am so thankful for being blessed with a Godly husband. I ask God to bless my children likewise. Now, I’m gonna find my crochet needles!

  28. April 19, 2010 8:15 pm

    The hair clips, the tiny pink baskets, too cute! I love Easter decor it’s so sweet. Missed you.

    These little baskets are just adorable. I copied your instructions and I am going to see if my dear daughter-in-law will help me with them. Thanks :>) Great idea!

  33. April 21, 2010 10:23 am

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your crocheted baskets are adorable. The vine you asked me about on my blog is called a clematis. Talk to you again soon!

  34. April 21, 2010 12:19 pm

    Hello, Li.
    I came over to for a visit after I saw your comment on my blog. Thank you for the encouraging note. And yes, you are absolutely right (about going to look for a feather and ending up with the hydrangea flowers) — God does that, doesn’t he. Not always what we expect, but he certainly knows how to surprise us.

    I just love your little baskets. I do some knitting and I can’t imagine how you got those little baskets so perfect. They are beautiful! Hope you have a blessed day!

    Sheri

    Hi Li, I never did finish my pink Saturday visits. I adore your Easter baskets in miniature. I agree, Easter should be remembered all year. Handmade is so special. I think you SHOULD have some to keep for yourself.

    Have a great week.
    Hugs, Jeanne

  36. April 22, 2010 10:14 pm

    Oh my Li, these are just precious!!!! I can’t crochet so I admire your work immensely!!!
    That pin below is really something too!!
    So glad to see you this morning…you always make me smile.
    Hugs,

    Hi, Li! I love your cute baskets. That is a very, very clever idea! 🙂

    Just wanted to drop by and give you a cyber hug this morning. I took a break from the workers to blog, and I have to head back to St. Augustine to supervise in a few. Not sure when they will finish or I will return, but hopefully soon???

    Sending you big hugs across the miles…

    XO,
