Today I just realized that I did not have an Easter basket for my youngest son. Last year he was an infant, so we got by with putting him in a pastel onsie while attending the egg hunt. You know what its awful… I really don’t want to buy one of those expensive baskets or bags. Years ago, we made sure that when oldest son was a toddler he had a $40 Easter Basket monogrammed from Pottery Barn. This is a great example of how my parenting style has changed from having one child to having two. Do I think that my youngest will hold it against me later in life, that I did not provide him with a $40 monogrammed Easter Basket… nope.
DIY Easter Bag…For the 2nd Born
The purpose of Easter Baskets is to hold eggs and treats. The total cost of this project was $2.99 + tax.
I like the blue tote, but it was too large for my toddler to carry.
I cut the top 1/4 off the bag.
I needed to make him some new handles. I pinned drapery rope to the top of the open bag.
With my sewing machine I attached the handles to the bag. Using red thread, I hemmed the top of the bag.
With white acrylic paint I painted a little bunny and “Bryce” in a banner. After the paint was dry I went over the bunny and banner with a black and gold sharpie.
I think it is just as cute and an expensive bag. All that matters is that the bag can carry out it’s duty….holding the goods.
