It was handmade (in the 80’s) by the nursery worker at our local bowling alley.
It was a compliation of yarn, ribbon, and a plastic milk jug.
I’m pretty sure it’s long gone now, but here is a photo of the closest thing I could find online.
You can imagine how much I loved it.
And you can imagine how guilty I feel to admit that:
My children do not have Easter baskets.
Why? you ask.
How could I have let that happen?
It’s a mixture between wanting their baskets to be keepsakes, keeping Christ in Easter, and just an overall lack of time.
(and a whole lot of procrastination)
But that is all in the past, and this year, I was not about to let another Easter morning pass without baskets.
So I bought four identical baskets from Walmart,
And sewed little liners for them:
You can tell I din’t measure because they are kinda baggy
But for twenty minutes I’m pretty happy….All I did was sew the sides up a fat quarter and then make corners at the bottom:
And even though I didn’t have time to make them perfect, I’m glad we now have some!
Eventually I’d like to add a bit more customization for each kiddo,
maybe the first letter of their name or something to make it special for each child.
These would look really beautiful with the Naturally dyed Eggs we did last year!
