Happy (belated) Easter! I hope you all had a fun-filled weekend with your families. We went to Ohio to visit my in-laws for the long weekend. I have a niece 6 months older than my daughter, so it’s really fun to watch them together. Holiday’s really are so much more fun with kids. For my daughters first Easter, I wanted her to have a really fun Easter basket. I know she wouldn’t be able to hunt for Easter eggs, but she could at least sit next to it and look adorable.
Back in March, I was scrolling through Instagram and saw the coolest woven fabric basket. Lucky for me, Mister Domestic generously provided a tutorial so I was able to make my own. I love it so much, my daughter is going to use this as her Easter Basket
forever until she can ask for something different. Ha!
I chose fabrics from the Moda line Early Bird by Kate Spain. I loved the colors in this line. They are bright and spring-y. Because I want my daughter to use this (forever) for at least a couple years, I didn’t want to use something too babyish that she would grow out of by next year.
Pro tip: Mister Domestic recommends using Wonder Clips to hold everything together while it dries. If you don’t have them (like I don’t), get them. Having them would have made this process so much easier. In the end, I found clothespins in my laundry room. The clothespins did the trick in a pinch, but I would have saved myself some time and frustration if I had just followed the materials needed from the beginning.
Go check out Mister Domestic’s tutorial if you want to make one of your own. It’s super easy, and the end result is really cute!
