A) I think they’re great!
B) You should TOTALLY give me instructions so I can make one of those baskets for my dollar dance!!
@hiroshymatetrastar: It was actually really easy. Though my mother-in-law to be did help with the sewing. Basically we started with a wicker basket, wrapped the red satin ribbon around the handle and hot glues the ends at each base of the handle. As for covering the basket my Mother-In-Law cut rectangle strips of satin long enough to wrap around the base over the sides and into the inside of the basket. They were prettu long. then she folded the rectangled in half and sewed the seam she arranged them so the seam would be on the back of each rectangle (touching the basket then she glued each end inside the basket. She layered them around the whole outside of the basket so it looked pleated. After glueing she cut a oval piece for the bottom of the basket and covered it in satin. I made the bow out of ribbon and hot glued the trails and the bow to the front! Hope that helps! Overall the basket and the pillow took about 4 hours.
