A Tisket A Tasket-

An Easter Basket for Con-Man! 

I went out to buy an Easter Basket for The Con-Man, but everything was either really girly looking (where were all the boy baskets!) or had large stuffed animals on them; which is fine but I wanted something simple for him. So I had to take matters into my own hands.

I bought a basket at Micheals (40% off!) for $5. And using some leftover fabric from when I made Con-Man's crib bedding I got to work.

I measured the depth of the basket and cut out a long fabric strip, then cut out a circle for the bottom.

I pinned them together and sewed the strip and circle together, then sewed up the side.

After it was all sewn up I hand sewed it into the basket.

Then done! Now Con-Man has a cute Easter Basket he can use every year. :D 

I put it by the fireplace (that's where the Easter Bunny comes right?!). I can't wait for Con-Man to see it. I saw some at the store with a bow, but I wasn't sure if I should but one on Con's basket or not. What do you think? Bow or no bow?

He likes it!

What a cute idea. This will certainly keep things from getting into the cracks of the basket. I like bows on baskets but I have 3 girls. Not sure what is done for boys. This is a great idea for any decorative basket.

Gorgeous basket! On a side note, my son's name is Conlan, we call him the con-man too! Not a common nickname for a little boy, lol.
