One bit of crafting I did over Easter you saw in the previous video. The Easter Baskets! Imagine my surprise this year when I discovered that finding an Easter Basket for the boys in Ireland would be a challenge! Turns out Easter Baskets aren’t a thing here. What is done is that candy companies produce gift sets which mostly contain a large hollow chocolate egg with a few pieces of whatever candy the box is themed after. (i.e. a Cadbury Creme Egg box)
I did some searching on Pinterest for a basket I could make for the boys. I found this great tutorial!
I used some fat quarters I had in the stash with the themes of what they’re into right now–cars/trucks/emergency vehicles and planes/helicopters!
They’re big enough to fit a magazine in! The boys had a blast collecting eggs in them, too.
If I would do anything different, I would use two pieces of fabric to construct the body of the basket. As the fabric I used was directional, using one piece creates a basket with upside down print on one side.
