There are some things you can make out of crochet and some you can't. Somehow some things just look super cheesy while some look super cool. I decided that crocheted baskets fell into the good catagory and decided to have a go. These one's were made for my Mum's birthday. She seemed very pleased with them when I spoke to her this evening so it seems like I made the right call.
