This is my first basket. It is fabric (sis, you might recognize this yellow & white check!) torn into 1" strips. Then crochet, just like yarn. (For those of you who don't know, this is my absolute favorite craft ever!! And maybe a big cause of the carpal tunnel!) It was a one afternoon project, and I split it up into two segments so my carpal tunnel wouldn't hurt so badly. I have enough fabric to make one & a half more! It was so easy and fun! I think I'll be making more of these!
