    Easter Baskets from Your Scraps

    I know it is a little late for this year, but I ran across this site and thought of all the people with children and grands. It looks like it could be fun for everyone. You might be able to use it for Halloween too, at least for a decoration of some sort.

    Very cute. I have an egg made like that using the balloon, starch and crochet thread. When it was done and dry, you pop the balloon, cut an oval on the side and trim with lace. Makes a cute type of handleless basket

    And we can use our rotary cutter with a pinking blade in lieu of shears. Just a thought.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    These are cool baskets. Do you think you could also make cloth handles out of fabric strips? Do
    you think they would be strong enough?

    I think these baskets are more for decoration than they are for actual use. I would not use them as a child's Easter Basket or for a Halloween Treat Bag.
