Every year, I seem to enjoy Easter more and more. It’s certainly something joyful and bright to look forward to after a long winter. I’ve also started some of my own spring traditions, such as assembling little bundles of Easter goodies to send to my friends.

Easter candies and sweets are so cute…It’s fun to assemble a little assortment and imagine my friends’ surprise. I love sending little parcels in the mail. Last year I made fabric baskets from this pattern–one of my all-time favorites. I also made some scrappy little bunnies for my niece and nephew. I didn’t have a pattern, just sort of made it up as I went along, so they are a bit wonky…

So far this year, I’ve made some little treat bags from this cute pattern. I also adapted it slightly, (adding a lining and a different bunny design). They are really quick to sew, so I think I can make plenty before Easter.  I have some ideas for other Easter crafts that I hope to try soon. In the meantime, Happy Spring!

  1. I love all your craft projects. The toy bunnies are so cute and the fabrics you used for the baskets are really pretty. Your bunny embroidery has me itching to make some beautiful bags. Such personal and thoughtful gifts for your friends.

    • aww, thank you so much! Sorry for the late reply! I’ve really enjoyed doing these simple embroidery projects. It’s so nice to finish something in one day. I’d like to try some cross-stitch again, but I fear I don’t have the concentration for it…Hope you are having a lovely day, and thanks again for stopping by!
