Our Easter

My three little men, Easter 2011
This Easter was a happy one full of family and fun. My little men were thrilled to see that the Easter Bunny came and I was pleased as punch to see them successfully wear what I made them. Some would say it is child abuse to make your boys wear bow ties AND carrots, but I thought they were darling. It was well worth the effort!
 The carrots were inspired by the CUTEST picture I saw on the blog, Aesthetic Outburst. Since I was too late to enter the giveaway, I had to make my boys a version of my own. I wanted them to sorta match their bowties, so I made them with the correlating patterned fabric scraps. I think I like her basic felt version better, but I was still smitten. I will miss having young sons who are willing to put up with so much.

This picture was taken after church in his disheveled state. Getting a 19-month-old to hold still is so tricky.

 I made bowties for my older sons with the leftover fabric from the shortalls I made my youngest. My version might take a smidge bit longer to make than the standard bowtie, but I think the finished result is worth it.

I made some last minute basket-stuffers for my youngest two sons. I am sure enjoying learning how to crochet!

I made this little fella in less than an hour. He was darling. I wish I had larger eyes, but besides that, I am a fan of how it turned out. I made it from this free pattern that I was directed to on the blog, Maybe Matilda (she is amazing and you better believe I am going to try to make her bomber hat).

I made this little friend from a free pattern from Lions Brand. It was simple and fun and I have no doubt that someday my son will like it (it is hard to compete with candy). I never got around to buying baskets so my sister made some out of paper bags and spray painted them blue. They were perfect. Too bad I don't really have a picture of them.
