I figured it belonged on the crochet board since that's what it is. With poptabs. It was originally going to be a bag, but as I ran out of yarn I started thinking in alternatives rather than unravelling all that work. That's how it became a breadbasket instead. I made an inner basket out of linen, it's removable, so it can be tossed in the washer when it gets dirty.

Pattern is freehanded and made up as I went along, and I'm thinking I might make another in different color. Maybe black. Or red.

LOL...when I looked at the picture before reading, I too thought it could be an outrageous pet bed. But that's my answer for everything. Nice job. No doubt you have the happiest bread on the block.

Maybe I should make my next project a pop-tab pet bed instead of a bread basket then? Wink At the moment it serves as a yarn-basket. But that's possibly because it was the only excuse I could come up with to put it on the middle of the table until I figure out what to do with it.

I absolutely love this! I am constantly needing flat baskets like that or trays around my studio for art supplies or when I do art projects with kids and this would be perfect for that!
