happy easter

Easter baskets based roughly on Melissa’s soft boxes with some twill tape handles. I used alphabet stamps and linen scraps for the names. I’m imagining all sorts of uses for these after the big egg hunt.

And a little treat for me too. Some hens and chicks potted up in mason jars. I love the simple unfussy repetition of colour and shape. I think they will make a great addition to our Easter table.

A healthy, happy long weekend to you all!

  1. Ha! I just tried to make a similar fabric basket without following any tutorial and let me just say, yours turned out much nicer than mine. Lovely job. The hen and chicks are so sweet too!

      Oh no! I used a 6 inch square quilting ruler to get really nice clean squares. I also didn’t use interfacing. I had some leftover fused fabric from another project. Muslin and the Amy Butler print stuck together with Heat and Bond. Then I lined it with more muslin. I think that helped keep the shape.
