Father Winter has yet to let go of his tight grip on Maine. But we are hopeful. Though we experienced 50 degree weather this week, we were sent a snowstorm yesterday in order to remind us that spring is not yet here. (Even though it has arrived here, here and here). But, that won’t stop us from preparing for it!
I spent a good portion of this snowy weekend sewing up some sweet Easter tote bags for a handmade gift exchange that my friend Harmony is hosting. There are 13 children involved in the exchange, but I made more than was needed.
Because these were made for kids, I gave faces to the appliqued bunnies. But I prefer them without faces, as seen below.
Here are some close-up examples of these little cuties…
If anyone out there is interested in purchasing one, or having one custom made, I will sell them for just $10 each. They are fully lined, measure about 9″ x 7″, and can come in several fabric variations. Just ask 🙂
I see the kids using these on Easter morning to collect their Easter eggs. And speaking of eggs … look at these beauties that were just collected this morning here at the homestead…
The chickens are certainly ready for Spring! Are you?
