Repost: An Easter Craft


**This one was originally posted over at The Fipper Show on April 25, 2011 while we were travelling in Germany.  Sorry if I'm a little repost happy but they were all done before the crafty blog.  Plus...Easter comes around every year.**


While packing for this trip I realized we would be celebrating Easter while we were here. I talked a little to Fisher about it and we were trying to come up with a solution that didn't involve bringing their Easter baskets and eggs from home. I have really gotten myself into something here because any time we are faced with a problem like this his answer is always "you should just make it mom".  But this time we did. I had planned to bring some felt with me anyway for my mental health crafting. So here's how it went down.

Baskets? Check.


But what to do about the eggs? I refused to haul plastic eggs all the way to Germany!! So I decorated some felt eggs with embroidery.

I made the back out of two pieces that overlap like a pillow sham. Then they can be stuffed with candy.

All candy filled and nestled in the basket.

They each got 6. Here are Piper's.

Two of my favorite ones for Pipey.

Boy colors for Fisher.

Two of my favorites for him.

This one is my REAL favorite. Fisher did this one himself. His first time EVER sewing with a needle and thread!

Unfortunately I don't have any action shots for you. The way we are set up here they sleep in the living room. And the Easter baskets were set out for the Easter bunny in the living room. Late night pictures of filled Easter baskets + sleeping kids = bad Easter experience. But they enjoyed finding their "stuffed" eggs and eating all the goodies.

Happy Easter

I love these! I'm gonna make Johnny some. Maybe I should fill it with applesauce since he doesn't like candy?

Ha ha ha. You totally should. Just make bigger ones.

Oh my goodness, I love this so much! Your blogs make me want to learn how to sew, desperately! Maybe you can put these on Etsy too! For me!

Jenessa, you KNOW I'll make some of these for you! Even if they don't make it into the shop.
