As a follow up to my Easter basket post, I thought I would show you my latest project. I was bummed that The Pink Giraffe sold out of their Easter baskets like the one I ordered last year for K. I waited too long, they always sell out!
But.....when I was at JoAnn craft store buying these, I also found these baskets! They are very similar to K's Easter basket! I made this one for my friend Charity. Her little 'soon to be 3 year old' is precious. Here is his basket attempt by me ($7.50 for the basket!). What do you think?
I made Charity an extra ribbon that she could change out year to year to make his basket look a tiny bit different...fun way to change up your basket without buying a new one!
So, it took me a few times (forever) to get the font size correct on my machine.... remember, I am an amateur monogrammer (is that even a word?). I do it for "fun."
Ribbon was half off at Hobby Lobby (yay!), so I stocked up (again)! Its a sickness. Oh, and I still need to learn how to make a bow. That's on the list: learn to make a bow.
-The baskets come in small and large at JoAnn craft and fabric store and are 50% off right now!
-The small basket is 50% off of $14.99
-The large basket is 50% off of $19.99
-Ribbon periodically goes 50% off at Michaels and Hobby Lobby, I never buy it unless it IS half off, hard to justify. Just wait, and next trip it will probably be on sale. I abide by the same rule for embroidery thread.
-My monogram machine is a brother PE-750D in case you were wondering! =)
We had a small case of "bed head" this morning. Yikes!
Oh, and yes that is a tampon in her mouth, its her new thing. She RUNS to grab them in the bathroom and I am constantly taking them away from her. Just wait, sister, just wait.....
