Bunny Baskets for Easter Egg Hunts

These fab-ric stacking baskets are not only pretty this Easter but also egg-ceptionally useful for collecting all those choccie eggs.

They are quick to sew together and eggstra-ordinarily straight-forward to make. 
I used the tutorial over on birch fabrics but made mine all quite a bit smaller.

And I sewed on some cute little bunny shapes cut from felt…and gave each bunny an egg-stra special button-tail.

Add a fabric strip as a handle for the perfect easter egg collecting basket…an egg'cellent gift for all the youngsters this Easter…unbeatable!

Knitted Bunnies

A lovely alternative to giving chocolate and sweets this Easter is the gift of a gorgeous knitted bunny.

Ballerina bunny is k(n)itted out in such a sweet outfit.  
This dapper little fellow below was made in South Africa by a wonderful company Handmade Karoo that creates employment for local women in a small farming town.

We gave them a selection of our handmade Incomparable buttons which look beautiful on this handcrafted range…no plastic after all their hard work.

The heart buttons are always a popular choice and the little white star button made the ballerina's outfit tutu special indeed!

The fabric stacking baskets have had stacks of attention and are an Easter project that I'll post about next so pop back for a visit to see how to make a set yourself…and since I've now promised a new post, I'd better hop to it and get started on it.

Crochet Baskets

I recently had a birthday where I was lucky enough to be given these gorgeous crochet baskets by 2 different people - they obviously know me well!

I'm absolutely smitten with this beautiful pair. 

With all being hearts and roses these days, I couldn't help but attach this exquisite handmade heart pendant. The soft duck egg blue teams perfectly with the lilac basket.

The grey basket is easy to pair up with most of the heart pendants from the Incomparable range.  
I chose the slightly larger blue heart and attached it to the handle with a ribbon.

I've been taking the baskets on my evening walks and fill them up with figs and passion fruit which are available in abundance at the moment.
I've just made a fig & ginger preserve and am about to pop a passion fruit meringue pie into the oven…I'll post the recipes over the next few days.

Owl Love you Forever

Unbelievably February is on our doorstep and its that time of year again to fall in love with, well, being in love.
These owl sweetie bags are a lovely gift for friends at school.

Simply cut a rectangle out of coloured paper to cover the front of a ready-made bag. 
Cut the shape for the face, 2x 3 different sized circles for the eyes and 2 heart shaped wings.
Glue them into place.
Use an Incomparable heart button for the beak and 2 little heart buttons for the feet.

And of course, he needs one more little heart as the finishing touch.

Fill the bag with sweeties and attach a cute little message…
'Owl be your Valentine x'
