Over the past year, I have seen these belly baskets popping up all over blogs, magazines and in stores. I bought a few and have found them to be super useful: they are great as a laundry basket, a kids toy box and my favourite idea at the moment to act as a “pot plant” for indoor house plants – naturally the plant needs to be in a water tight container, but it so nice to have a varied look from the typical ceramic pot plant holder.

This patterned one below is from Depot.

And this plain one from IKEA.

And I spotted one like this at Do It and Garden, but I think you could easily craft one of these yourself.
