Basket of Pansies

I have been working on a little six inch block of Leslie's and was excited to find what I thought were boullion pansies in one of my books. On closer look though, they were made with a cast-on buttonhole stitch so had to learn that one! lol I made a little woven basket for them with boullions for the top rim and handle (which have both pretty well disappeared under the flowers) and then wove the bottom of the basket. All that was in two strands of DMC. Then I made the pansies in an assortment of colours also with two strands of DMC and little seed beads for their centers. Since I love pansies I really enjoyed making this!
