Picnic Basket Backpack
This handwoven, insulated picnic basket backpack will hold it all – the wine, the meal, the dessert and more! The best part is your hands are free to pick some flowers along the way. You can buy your own from Kathy Kobrick Designs.
Butcher Paper Picnic Baskets
These individual picnic baskets from Oh Happy Day are made from butcher paper – you can download a free template. They’re fun and inexpensive to make, and the best part is everyone gets exactly what they want in their own baskets.
No-Sew Fabric Basket Weave
ChiWei from One Dog Woof used a standard pattern for a paper basket weave and instead used fabric for this no-sew basket. What a great way to coordinate your fabric to your room and leave it out all year long to multi-task as an organizer.
