This hanging basket crochet pattern is absolutely darling, free and whips up quickly! It’s perfect for organizing kids toys or stuffed animals in.
My boys have a ton of stuffed animals in their bedrooms and I needed an easy storage solution! So I created this simple hanging basket that can be used to store all kinds of things.
I love quick and easy projects like this that also provide a useful organizational hack for our home! Fun to create and great for using in the kids bedrooms.
This free pattern is easy to make bigger or smaller depending on the size of hanging basket that you want. I made a smaller version as well for hanging plants in!
