Animal Basket - Op Shop Finds

March 04, 2014

Although I have not been on the lookout, when I saw this my mind drew a picture of the sweetest basket ever for toting around tiny animals...

At our place we have a growing menagerie of Schleich animals.  We visit the zoo quite regularly and sometimes our little girl is lucky enough to choose an animal to come home with us.  Hours upon hours are spent playing with them, and carrying them from place to place often sees them balanced precariously on a plate.

To make it nice and cosy, I crocheted a nice soft little blanket for the animals to snuggle under when they need a nap.  Because animals get tired, especially when they are being carried around :)

With our little girl's birthday today this made a really delightful little gift for her, ticking all sorts of boxes...

For her love of: Baskets, toting things around, pink, her beloved animals and snugly blankets.
For my love of: Recycled, inexpensive, natural, good quality and beautifully made.

Wins all round.
