Nesting Basket Trio Pattern

Baby #2 is due any day now, and along with her impending arrival comes NESTING and getting her nursery ready. We haven’t been able to do a lot of decorating in her nursery since we’re renting and we can’t repaint or put holes in the walls, but we’re doing little bits. I decided I wanted some baskets on her dresser, but I didn’t want wicker baskets…so I made my own! These nesting baskets can be made in any color/colors you want, they look great nested together as decorations, and they’re handy for all your storage needs.
