What materials did you use? Craftsy Mystery Box

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Scraps of fabric line the inside with a simple whip stitch. The fabric gives them a sturdiness and really helps them to stand upright. The blue yarn was in this Craftsy Mystery Box. If you haven't pulled the trigger or are new to them, give it a try. You won't be sorry. Gorgeous things in every surprise box. Dark greys and black are a bit difficult to shoot but it's a beautiful squishy yarn that was a joy to work with. It's Cascade 128 Superwash. I'm not sure they carry this dark grey any longer, however, they have a long list of other great colors. I had some Aneela Hoey Little Apples left over from a blanket I made to line one of the baskets with. You can't see, but the bottom has a cardboard circle in the bottom to help them all keep their shape. You can cover them with fabric as well. Now, what to fill them with! *Slip a jar candle in one. *Knitting/crochet notions in another. *One would be a really cute baby shower gift for the nursery. Fill it with lotion, washcloths and the like. *One by the door to hold keys, cel phone and whatnot! *The grey one could easily hold fruit on the kitchen counter!

I would love a pattern also. I have such a stash of yarn and I need to do something with it.

Well, sort of! If you pop over to my blog, you can read what I mean. It is a modified pattern from another designer. Here is my blog site http://sheilazachariae.blogspot.com/2013/02/buckets-baskets.html

Thanks so much! I recently noticed that one of the larger ones fits around an unsightly jar candle nicely!
