Christmas Makes Are Continuing: Crochet Santa Storage Baskets Pattern

I’m in full Christmas makes mode at the moment and am slowly starting to make to some progress. This makes combines Christmas and one of my favourite types of makes – storage baskets, since making my Elf storage baskets last year I have been wanting to do a Santa version and I ran out of time last year so finally I have got them finished.

I actually had another idea half way through making these for a slightly different Santa version too – keep your eyes open for this different design over the next few days!.
