Pom-Pom Easter Basket
"Easter sort of snuck up on me this year, mothering-wise at least. I thought it would be easiest to skip a basket for the baby (he's only four months old after all), but then one tiny Easter-y thing after another snuck into my cart at Target, and I had to acknowledge that my nostalgic heart did want something special for his first Easter. My brother and sister and I always had the same Easter baskets throughout our childhoods, and I'd like that for my children too. I thought about buying a vintage Easter basket for Miles, but would have had to find two matching ones (can't leave out that someday-sibling). So, similar to our Christmas stockings, I decided to make his basket myself. I brainstormed for a little while – would I sew it? Knit it? Weave...something? I like rope baskets, and decided to add pom-poms and a wooden "M" to a plain white one – almost as a sort of charm. It turned out to be such a quick, satisfying project that I think has a high impact! Plus it will be easy to replicate on a second basket in a few more years!"
