Hippity Hoppity Easter's on its way!
I enjoy doing a little hand sewing sometime during my day. It's very relaxing. I also like working with felt. It is so easy to use and very forgiving.
We have 4 Grandkids (DJ-11, Mariah-8, Jacob-2, Nathan-8 months) that live way up north in Connecticut. I wanted to make them something for Easter instead of buying bunches of candy. I'll let their parents deal with that. I was going to try and design some different bunnies and such until I came across this shop. I fell in love with just about everything they designed. I purchased their Easter set a few weeks ago. I have been doing a little sewing on them every day of so. Of course I didn't follow the directions/pattern exactly, but the grandkids won't know :) I made jelly beans and eggs instead of making them cookies. I don't plan on making the basket for them either. They all live in a tiny apartment and Mom doesn't need anything extra laying around. I like to give them something useful that they can store lots of things in. I'm not sure what I'll make yet but I'm leaning towards a fabric bowl or something similar. That way they can keep all sorts of treasures in it .
I'm sure Grammy and Grumpy will find some other goodies to add to their baskets too :)
