Tips for Making Your Basket
1. Begin with a basic basket: A sturdy basket will be your foundation for all future baskets. Look for one that is both large enough to hold your items and small enough so that it easily carried.
2. Add a layer of insulation: A thick layer of insulation will keep your items cold or hot, depending on your needs. Thick cotton batting works well as an insulation layer, and is easy to find at most craft stores.
3. Add decorative touches: Embellish your basket with bright colors or whimsical patterns to give it an interesting look. Arrange the items in the basket in whatever way suits you, and enjoy adding a little bit of personality to your everyday routine!
