Here is a traditional stiff-sided thickly stitched basket with a heart-shaped button clasp. This beautiful basket can function as a grocery or beach tote, but will function equally well as a household yarn holder or just simply as a decorative piece somewhere a the room. It’s easy to make, has a couple of very sturdy handles and is rigid enough to stand upright when not clasped. Very nice! A link to a free pattern is at the end of the post.
