Description

I've sewn fabric baskets for all of my kids, their spouses and am doing them for each grandchild as he or she comes along.  This year I have to get 2 of them done as we got 2 new granddaughters last year and they are having their first Easters this year.

Here is the one for my youngest granddaughter born last December.

I sewed the basket, the tag, the little stuffed egg and cup, and knit the fabric for the bunny then sewed and stuffed it.  Sigh... I bought the book and the rubber ducky!

The pattern is OOP.  I've had it since the early 1980s and have used it many times.  The batting for the basket came from an unused crib bumper.  It is just perfect for this pattern.

Stay tuned for another basket coming later this week....

sew_what Believe it or not, I found it several years ago as fat quarters in a clearance bin. I bought several and used some bits of it last year in some little purses I made for my granddaughter and for my niece. I had forgotten I had it till I went stash diving for this project and of course, I had to use it. The blue dotted fabric was also a FQ that was in my stash. Nothing new to me was purchased for this item.
