Homemade Easter Basket...

from the 90s?? Haha I made this last Sunday while watching General Conference and as I pulled it out to work on it, my mom says "Wow blast from the past! Those are definitely from the 90s..." What?!? Haha Then I remembered we totally had baskets like these (but not as cute, sorry mom ha!) back in the day when I was growing up. I guess every trend does a full circle and I don't even mind because I love how this little basket turned out! My daughters do too. Why do I ever pull out a finished project unless there are 2?? EVERYTHING must come in two's around here...just saying... Anyways I saw this project from V & CO a couple years ago and always had it in the back of my mind of what I wanted to do for my girl's easter baskets. This year it actually happened :) Well...only one...but I better make another quick to save my sanity. The only thing I changed from her tutorial was for the handle. I doubled the piping and wrapped both with ribbon. Then, tied a tulle bow to finish it off. I still might add a monogram so we don't have fighting over the baskets later. This was super easy and I used all scraps woohoo! The only thing I bought was 12 yards of cording, which totaled to a whopping $3. Not too shabby. It was a little slow-going but I love hand stitching while watching my favorite shows. We always have to multi-task around here. Here is the finished product: I think I have a happy customer. And yes, she is still in her pajamas, because we don't get dressed unless we leave the house...
