Basket Bases!!

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! šŸŽ‰šŸŽ‰šŸŽ‰

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!

Squoval

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 šŸ˜³). 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 šŸ¤— just the pretend ones.

You can shop the Squoval size here.

Square Timber Bases

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 šŸŒˆ

You can shop the Square Timber Bases here.

Round Bases

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!!
