Crocheted Storage Bin

You know how necessity is the mother of invention?  Well, my  fiance and I moved in to our rental house and realized that it has very little storage. I didn’t realize how expensive storage bins can be! One new basket or bin usually costs at least $15, and we need at least 15 to store everything. Buying all of those at full price would be ridiculous, so we’ve been getting creative.

Since I learned how to start circle crocheting projects this week, I decided I’d try for a storage bin.

This one is very small, it’s 5″ in diameter, is  and is approximately  8″ tall, but it will be handy for something!

I’m still thinking of adding little leather handles, and I will be starching it, so I guess it’s not completely done, but I was too excited about how it turned out to not share the photos!

    It looks nice and very useful. The neutral color fits anywhere.

      Thank you!
      I agree! Our base color for our decor is grey, so we have a nice flow through the house, while still being able to have different colors in different rooms.
      Everything goes well with grey!
