Tiny raffia basket

small raffia basketWith this post, I will start a separate series on this blog Baskets. I have made a lot of them, using different materials, shapes and colors. Baskets are great to decorate your home, store small things, and try to be organized 🙂 They also make nice presents.

This one is made from raffia, which I also used to make the mini Christmas decorations last year. The material is quite sturdy, which makes it slightly harder to work with, but then it is quite suitable for objects that need to keep their shape.

Yes, holidays are here!

What I love most about holidays is the endless amount of surprises, presents, lights and smiles! To make this even more special, I believe everyone should make at least one present or decoration or sweets – forget the stores.

When I was a child, paper was my favorite material: for snowflakes, toys, garlands. This year, crochet was the obvious choice 🙂 These little decorations were made for the girls in my office, and the little pair of shoes was the hit 😉

Enjoy this wonderful time of the year and make something!
