Bunny Ready Easter Basket
Baby Andrew's Easter basket is ready for the bunny! Finally finished, mom and baby love it.
Based on the pattern by V and Co, Fabric Easter basket, my finished basket has about a 10" diameter and combination of machine sewing and hand stitching. The base of the basket is made up of about 15 yards of fabric wrapped, 12/32 cording; that's 11 more yards than what the original pattern calls for! I also used my sewing machine and zigzag stitched the bottom for more stability (and speed.) My thimble(s) proved to be essential to making sure my fingers made it to Easter.
I'm looking forward to my manicure and pedicure as payment. It's good to have friends that can sew, huh?
