before just about every holiday, with just a few days to go, I manage to come up with a gazillion crafty things I want to do for the boys. and, then I remember that I only have a few days and end up calling it quits on most of my ideas. well, this easter is really no different but I am proud to say that I squeezed in a wee bit of making and these fabric easter buckets will be taking the place of our regular baskets.
I plan to fill them with some quirky toys and just a few sweet chocolates. the boys are both crazy about chocolate and we happen to live literally half a block from a chocolate factory/shop, which is weird but true…there have been phases when we basically survived on chocolate. the only problem is we had a pretty bad visit to the dentist recently and have to lay off the sweets. because nothing whips a mama into shape quite like a shaming from the dental hygienist! ahem.the buckets are made based off this lovely tutorial. I added strips of ribbon to the base of the fabric and one ribbon handle to the side. simple and sweet and ready for easter goodness.
maybe I will even find a little time to make easter bunnies out of old sweaters and felted easter eggs with openings for hiding the chocolate and pom-poms garlands out of green yarn for grass and…well, maybe…maybe not.
