I want to make this...or win it!

One of my favorite Bakers has come up with something really cute...and useful for me!

I'm learning how to crochet and so is she, and she has made this awesome crochet clutch!

And the best part is, she's giving another one away! Ooo, save me from making two (psst, Kayla, I'm planning on making one for you!). You can check out the giveaway here.

Fabric Easter Baskets

And, I'm back! It's been too long since I got my craft on! I'm so happy that I was able to do something cute for my kiddies for Easter!

For Easter this year, I made fabric Easter Baskets from a tutorial on Moda Bake Shop. There were easy, but getting them the shape I wanted wasn't so easy. I would have failed a basket making class for sure!

Here are the three I made (didn't make one for the baby. I'll make him one next year). My hubby makes fun of the missed shape of all three. I let him. Oh well. At least the last one looks like an Easter Basket!

This one is for my lil' girl. The fabric is Soiree by Lila Tueller. It's my favorite. It turned out the best (still lopsided though) but it's big, looks like an basket and the colors are wonderful!

This one is for my oldest boy. It's Baskets of Flowers by Mary Engelbreit. This one was the first one I made. It's ok. The colors are good for a boy, but a little bright for Easter. Oh well.

And this one is for my 2 year old boy. It's Oh-Cherry-Oh! By Me and My Sister. This one just was so small to start with and it kept going in. At least he's a little boy.

All in all, good. My fingers are now all blister and calloused. And I stayed up way too late on Easter Eve working on my last basket. So glad I didn't make one for the baby!

Up next, a cute skirt I started a few weeks ago that I need to finish! Hopefully next week sometime. This week is for cleaning and packing. Going back to Utah for my best friends wedding!
