Okay, I created an Easter basket using a butter tub and crochet for my younger daughter because I thought I was short an Easter Basket. Well turns out I was short both Easter baskets since I can not recall where I stashed the one good one.
My older daughter was thrilled to hear the news that I was going to have to quickly whip her up an Easter basket. She immediately told me she didn't want hers to be like her sister Tate's but that I needed to sew her basket.
Okay, bossy elder child of mine. So I went scrounging through my meager fabric and trim stash and found some super cute animal print flannel and some white ruffled trim and using a butter tub as a base and created a really simple and cute Easter basket that looks entirely different from the first one.
I always seem to be saving all sorts of close-able containers as long as I can think of two immediate ideas on how to reuse it, other wise it goes into the recycling/garbage bin. I don't just keep things I think I can reuse, I have to have an actual idea and need in mind because I sure don't like clutter and I definitely don't want to become some crazy hoarder or garbage.
Hope you like it. I sure do love sewing on my new machine. So much nicer than that old mechanical Singer that the timing kept needing to be reset.
