After the busiest holiday season I’ve ever experienced, I decided to give myself the gift of peace for the New Year.

Ahhhh….peace.

Wait, close your eyes, take a deep breath and picture yourself snuggled up with a cup of tea, a cozy blanket and soft music.

See, the feeling is amazing! I want more of that.

For me, part of fostering that atmosphere will be in the creation of an organized and professional studio…no more hand-me-down furniture for me!

In that spirit, I’ve been working on storage solutions for my desk so I don’t end up with runaway paperclips and piles of pens that I can never find.

Lost supplies = no peace.

So I made a trio of miniature hanging baskets to hold all of my odds and ends and they do the trick!

I have a feeling I’ll be making several more of these in the days to come, but wanted to share the pattern with you so you might get yourself organized as well. (If you don’t crochet, but need these treasures as much as I do, you can purchase a set on my Etsyshop)




Patterns for a Trio of Tiny Crochet Baskets

The supplies you need for each miniature hanging basket include: a 6.5 mm crochet hook (US size K), approximately 30 yards of super bulky yarn (I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick), scissors and a tapestry needle for tucking ends.
