Heart Basket - New Pattern in Shop

I have a new Heart Basket pattern ready just in time for Valentine's day.  The basket is first worked as a flat piece, with heart design crocheted into piece by changing colors. Panel is folded in half verticially and sides are seamed together, then top section is folded into the bottom section to create a basket which is double thickness. Bottom piece is made separately, and then stitched to bottom edge. To finish; a cardboard insert is placed in the bottom of basket for stability and a decorative border is stitched around the top edge.

Finished size is 5" tall and 4" across the base of basket. The basket can be used to hold many things, but just happens to hold perfectly, a bag of chocolate kisses.  Unfortunately, since my photo shoot last weekend, my basket is now half empty.  Love those chocolate kisses!  :)

Pattern is available in my shop and also can be downloaded by clicking on the "download now" buttom below the picture.
