Thought I would share these. I made these baskets this summer and were a big hit. Not much work and little material involved but come out really nice. All needed is two pieces of trim, two pieces of 3/4 board for the ends and some ply for the bottom. All scrap from the pile. Have to admit the ladies love these! My wife uses one for bread loaves, napkins and to take spices out for picnics.

I can see how the ladies would be attracted to these baskets. Did you do the painting on them also?

Great projects—thanks for the tip with the ladies.

Thanks for looking guys, I appreciate it!
Lee, I do the painting on these, I haven’t stained one yet, maybe someday but kinda liked the colors. The buttons and scarves come from a local flea market, I dig through a bucket of them to find the right ones.
HillbillyShooter, Thanks guy, and glad I could be of some help with the tip. ;)

They sure look attractive, like the colors and the use of buttons and scarves. Pretty totes!
