Very Vintage Easter Basket Swap


There’s just something so magical about getting an Easter basket!  I had so much fun putting together the stuff for this swap… my awap partner loves bunnies and glitter.

I glued a ribbon and a flower onto a plastic egg, then I placed the cute bunny seals I made inside it (6 of each color)

instead of a basket, she found this cool vintage oilcloth bag…

also vintage:  bunny, Daisy Kingdom fabric applique (I’m going to use it to make some teatowels!), and a kit to make a pearl bead ring.

Robyn crocheted this cute bunny by using an egg pattern and adding ears. she  used some vintage baby yarn that her Mom has had for 25 years.  (very clever!)  Robyn also made the adorable Thanks A Bunch  pouches that contains a shredded loaf of soap and it is all natural and makes great bath! It melts once you pour it under the water!

This is the cutest vintage looking bunny I’ve ever seen!  The sweet glittery egg picks have vintage scenes on them, and the pink glittery egg contained the kisses and flower punches and bunny sticker pictures below.
