Happy Easter (baskets)

Happy Easter!

Easter eggs

I've been meaning to make the kids all coordinating Easter baskets. For years. I finally got my act together yesterday and made it happen.

I found some coordinating fabrics in my stash.

Easter basket fabrics

The pattern is adapted from Anna's Divided Basket pattern. Essentially, I left out the divider and the pocket, and shortened the height a bit. I wish I had used heftier interfacing-- without the divider to hold the middles in, they're a bit floppy. But they work just fine for Easter baskets.

Happy Easter!

I also made Cooper a Chewbacca softie I've had on my list since I saw it on MADE.

The pattern is from Draw Pilgrim, and so easy! I subbed out furry felt for the body and used nail polish for the silver on the bandolier. It came together in about an hour.

I hope you're having a great day! I'm busy cooking up food for a couple of family parties later. It's busy, but luckily I have Charlotte's chocolate bunny to keep me fueled. How nice of the Easter Bunny to leave it for her, even if she's not old enough to eat it herself.

You're a total rock star. My kid didn't get a homemade basket but I did make 6 rhyming clues for an easter egg treasure hunt so...
