    How would you make sides of this basket stiff enough to remain upright in order to hold its contents?

      Use millinery wire with joiners. Kara beautiful baskets. Christmas presents!

        Ann. what do you mean by millinery wire with joiners? I have never heard of this. Could you explain? I always have trouble with my crocheted baskets being flimsy.
        thank you
