I've been trying to write this post since Saturday, but between Madison walking (?!) and our internet being S-L-O-W for the last couple of days, my every attempt up 'til now has been thwarted. I thought about letting it go and not sharing, because who wants to read about an Easter basket five days after the fact? Then I decided that this post is not late, it's actually about 360 days early.
I wanted Madison to have a cute Easter basket, but I didn't want to spend much money, so I decided to
In a (fruitless) effort to make the basket more wield-able for Madi, I cut off the too-long handle, trimmed it, and wove it back into the basket, securing it with Liquid Nails.
Once the paint dried and the basket was back to its regular size (I guess it works kind of like Cinderella and goes back to normal at midnight), I got to work adding the fabric. I chose my fabric from four options, all purchased for $1.50/yd for Madison's weekly photo project. I put them all up next to our ensemble (everyone together now: oooh, aaahhh) and picked what I thought was the best option of the four. I'm now having second thoughts, for reasons I'll share later on.
