I'm not sure how long it took, because I stopped alot (kids and things).  I would say no more than 3 hours.

I made the basket pattern exactly, except I left off the beads and added an extra row at the top to try to make the roll for the rim of the cup fatter to help hold up the lid a bit.  When that didn't work too well, I went on the inside of the cup, and just under the rim of the cup, I added a row all the way around of single crochet.  That worked pretty well.  For the lid, I made the two circles for the base of the basket in a different color, and stitched them together.  Halfway around, I inserted a CD and then finished stitching it up.  For the handle, I used Jen's idea that she posted here: http://www.crochetme.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=17

I didn't use glue though, I just left a tail that was as long as my handle and fed it back through all the stitches with a needle.  This made it stiff enough to stand up.  Then I stitched it to the cup.  Finally for the tag, I made a sqare by chaining 6 and then single crocheting through both loops with a "Chain 1" at the end of each row (should have 5 stitches in each row) until it was square and then ended it with a slip stitched and worked in the tail.  After I finished that, I did a slip stitch on the bottom row of the square in the 3rd stitch and  40-50 chain stitches.  Then I slip stitched it to the lid.  I hope that wasn't too confusing.  Sorry, but I've never tried to give instructions before.  Grin

Thanks so much, Kamithina!  This is heading for the top of my Do Next list.  Two questions: what kind of yarn did you use and do you remember what size hook?
« Reply #16 on: January 25, 2005 11:44:46 AM »

The yarn is easy; I used Red Heart SuperSaver white and tan.  As for the hook size, I'd have to look it up, but I used whatever yarntomato suggested in her pattern.  Good luck!!  Grin
