I made this shape using the pathfinder tool. This tool takes the 2 overlapping shapes and removed the top shape from the shape on the bottom. This option can be found in window<pathfinder
These two project where dobe using the minus front tool.I have created a hexagon and minus front the top half of it tI create a shape of a basket. Then I have created a square and rotated it so it becomes a diamod.Then I copied and pasted it on the basket and again used the minus front tool to make the basket have holes that are see through.The handle is a rectangle. To make the rectangle have a oval shape I used the white curser and moved the anchor point at the end .
