I've almost finished both a short and tall sized basket. They're both very cute and I can't wait to show them off! However, with the large basket, which I made first, the pocket measurements - the stitching lines were not correct, so the middle pocket came out too large and gaped. I ended up adding a seam, so that there are 4 pockets on one side, instead of three. Easy enough to do. I thought it would add shape to the basket to add a seam to each corner, making 2 more pockets on each of the short sides (if you do pockets on both sides). Also, the seam allowance wasn't specified for the handle, but I figured 1/2 inch was probably fine and it was. I plan to make more of these as gifts, as soon as I finish the short one for me!
