I decided to sew the girls Easter baskets this year, since they seem to distroy the wicker type woven ones, from carrying them around so much. They looooved these! I let the older of the two pick what she wanted sewn onto hers (A sheep and a butterfly) and I did a bunny for my little stinker.

Full of the loot she got from good ol mister Easter bunny.

Close up of the bunnie and his carrot... I got a new camera, but obviously I'm still the worlds worst photographer. The purple corderoy that I used for the bottom/handle of this basket, came from some pants I used to have.... I can't imagine wearing them now. I remember getting comments every time I wore them 5 years ago *shudder*

And the Sheep and purple butterfly. I ordered the cotton prints from Hawthorn threads, I love that site. The pink corderoy is left over from Josie's jumper.
To make them stiffer, on the cotton fabric layer, I used some of that nice cotton quilt batting that looks like felt. And for the lining, I used a peice I got in the remnant bin, of quilted pink poly/cotton. There's rickrack up around the handles. I wish I had had a chance to run to the store when I was finishing them up. I needed some of that trim you would use to keep the handle a little stiffer. I just put a peice of quilt batting in it, but I should have used that stuff instead (I can't remember what the heck it's called....)
