Rustic Crochet Baskets Patterns

I’m trying to find cheap ways to decorate my bathroom for the $100 Room Challenge. Why not make some cute baskets that will bring color to the room.

Erin, from Lemons, Lavender and Laundry, started this series in September 2015 :

One room, one month and $100

Now she opened it to other bloggers and I’m glad to say that I’m part of it, updating my bathroom.


See the recap here : 
 Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5

We’re currently on our way to week four so these cuties will be featured (among other things) in that week’s post.
If you would like to make these baskets, they are pretty easy and kept me busy during my flight back home from springbreak 😉
