Diy Easter Bag….Last Minute

Hi Friends,

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.

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.

    Can you even believe that there was a day and a time that we would spend that kind of money on something?! Hehe I’ve been known to do that too! Your bag is adorable little Bryce will love it!
