Time to Sew Easter Baskets!

Last year, I had the crazy idea that Easters baskets should have a function after the holiday!

Using The Divided Basket pattern from Anna at Noodlehead, I became completely addicted to sewing these!  Not all of them were for Easter, or got photographed, or had their own post on the blog!  I was thinking about what do to for baskets this year and thought you might enjoy seeing some of my creations!  Here they are:

Let's Hear it for The Boys  BTW...  He loved his Easter basket!  It now holds action figures!

Black with Yellow Check, not a great picture, huh?

What are you thinking for Easter Baskets this year?  These were such a big hit, I'd better get busy and make some more!  What fabrics do you think would look nice?
