I wasn't sure where to post this.....
I am looking for a pattern so I can make my two girlies their baskets this year I am tired of the wicker ones being around forever. LOL Also any thoughts on what to make to put in there? My goal this year is 50 percent handmade... They already each have a shirt I made them in there. I will post those later, when I find my camera cord. LOL TIA

Basket fillers:
--You can make some fancy hair bows to go with their easter outfits, and attach them to barrettes. I once saw a link here on SWN about corkscrew bows, and they were so cute. Try a search for that.
--How about making up a little kit for a craft project?

How about something like the fabric bowls that are popular now? I made a friend one for her birthday a few days ago and filled it with Easter candy. I'm sure a handle could be added to make a basket if you wanted to.,1789,HGTV_3302_2758344,00.html

I was at Hancock fabrics yesterday and on the counter they had a free pattern to make an Easter Bunny tote bag that would be really cute to use as an alternative to an Easter Baskeet.
