I found the bagsket pattern about a week ago, and they make just about perfect christmas presents for the boyfriend's mom and sister-in-law.  (plus, I had to make one for myself)

this was a fun pattern to sew, and I foudn some lovely chocolate browns to work with for these.  although, the inside "bag" tended to be too loose in all of them--I recommend shortening the height of these, and making them a little narrower as well, to fit more cleanly inside the basket part.

Here they all are:


One for me (I just loooooove the butterfly fabric!):


One for his mom ([sigh], yes, it's sideways):


And one for the sister-in-law (also sideways  Undecided ):


thanks for looking!  Smiley

edit: here's the link for the pattern: http://foofanagle.wordpress.com/2007/06/26/bagsket-tutorial/

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

They're about 11inches in diameter, about 12 inches high.  Fairly big.  The pattern gives instructions for both 9inch and 12inch sizes.
