Have you ever made a crochet basket, just for it not to sit flat? Argh. The wasted yarn, & a wobbly basket – no thanks.
Cait @basket_bases_australia has come up with a CLEVER & gorgeous solution to this problem – wooden basket bases!!!! These wooden plates have perfectly cut holes that allows a hook & yarn to pass through, so you can make perfect flat bottom baskets, & other things, whilst saving yarn – genius! 🎉🎉🎉
These are the bases that i have, so far. There are many more shapes & sizes available here from Basket Bases. But i wanted to show you the ones that i have, & what i have planned for them!
Dimensions: 46 x 26cm
This is the newest shape to the Basket Bases collection, the Squoval! As soon as i saw this shape, i new what i wanted to make – a baby doll carrier for the twins!! It is the perfect shape & size. When Cait heard my plans, she generously gifted me a second Squoval with my order, so the twins can have one each & not fight (because we all know what will happen if i only made one 😳). I will be sharing all about my dolly baskets here once i have made them, so you can make one too!
Other ideas for this shape/size, would be of course – baskets. Perfect for storage of yarn, or WIPs, or finished blankets. Toy storage too. It is the perfect size for any larger storage needs.
Definitely not for human babies.. just saying 🤗 just the pretend ones.
You can shop the Squoval size here.
Dimensions: 10cm (also available in: 12cm, 14cm, 18cm, 22cm, 26cm, 30cm)
I have 2 of the 10cm timber bases, & i am going to make coasters for our table! I will, of course, end up making a whole rainbow set 🌈
You can shop the Square Timber Bases here.
Dimensions Available: 10cm, 12cm, 14cm, 18cm, 22cm, 26cm, & 30cm
I have two Round Bases, pictured above, in 18cm & 14cm! And i am going to make a few baskets with these for scrap yarn, & hooks – especially my large chunky hooks.
The possibilities are endless with these bases, & they could be used for any sort of storage imaginable. I would like to get some more & make some baskets for our bathroom.
You can shop the Round Bases here.
So that is all the bases i have so far, but there are so many more available at Basket Bases – Woven Glory Shop, including the option to have your name, or business name, or anything else engraved in the bottom of the bases too!!
You can find Basket Bases/Woven Glory here:
i will be back with another post soon, to show you my progress on the Squoval dolly beds, & maybe even a little tutorial on how to make them yourself!! 🤗
