Mini Treat Basket

I worked up this mini basket last night . It was one of those kind of by accident things I ended up falling in love with it!  It’s perfect for those little spring treats.  I used Sugar’n Cream Scents Fluer De Lavande.  It didn’t even use 1/2 of the 3oz. Skein. I’ve posted the pattern below. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
