Amigurumi is not just for softies, you can make these amigurumi styled baskets/holders with your left over cotton yarn. Meet panda, piggy and frog – these cute baskets are crocheted in the round, with ears/eyes sewn on top. They will hold your hooks, needles, pens, cellphone and keys, and why not your house plant? 🙂
