Homemade Easter Baskets

I can't believe that we didn't have even ONE homemade Easter basket linkup at our FFA party of Friday... sad! haha! I'm thinking that we need some ideas on how to make a good homemade Easter basket! I remember my Easter basket from when I was younger. I'm sure I have it stored away in a box somewhere. I LOVED my Easter basket. It was pink and hand sewn. My mom handmade baskets for all six of us kids. Each one fit our personality! I remember MINE was the CUTEST! *wink* We used them every year, without fail. The Easter bunny would always know exactly where to find the baskets and he always filled them with the best stuff! No matter how old we got, we always had a full Easter basket waiting for us in the morning! Thanks to my mom, I mean the Easter Bunny! :) These featured Easter baskets are anything but ordinary. If you are looking for a FUN, easy, inexpensive, homemade Easter basket... you've come to the right place!!
