Last Minute Handmade Easter Basket Guide!

Do you like the long (yet, impressively descriptive!) title of today's post? hah.

I've been admiring so many wonderful artists on etsy and scoping out their work (okay, drooling over it) for Easter for the last few weeks, so I thought I'd share the handmade love with ya'll in case you're looking for some last minute, incredibly special, items to grace your child's Spring baskets next week.
I've made sure to include shops that are in the US with RTG (ready-to-go) products so they will most likely arrive before this week if you buy...right...NOW!! My apologies to our Canadian friends & others, you'll just have to have fun searching for some local loveliness by yourself (and I won't feel toooo bad for you!)  :)

Here it goes!

Oh mah goodnessssss...the CUTENESS! I couldn't choose just one to show you, so I opted for the group shot with hopes that it'll temp you to click on the link (attached to the name of her shop, above) to admire all of the beautiful scenes Lisa Cooper depicts on her gorgeous felted eggs. These are so reasonably priced at just $17.50 an egg and she ships Priority - so GO! right now! Buy your family  holiday heirloom (or 2 or 5) that they will cherish for many Easters to come.

Next up are these adorable animal pillows by Stacey of vintagejane. These are just asking to be taken home and displayed front & center so that the cuteness can emanate throughout your entire home. And look...a Bunny! (but seriously, that fox or kitty would get just as much Easter love, come on...)

If you are the crafty type, these adorable bunnies from Rachel at CottonAndCarrot may be the ticket for ya. She'll send you a PDF pattern, so you have plenty of days left to whip up some sweetness for this weekend (and while you're at it, can you make me one too, please?) The scarfs make these bun-buns zoom to the top of the 'awesome' chart for me. I'm a sucker for a cute scarf.


4. AmysCuteCreations

 I LOVE the peek-a-boo surprise element to these lovely little eggs. Don't they look so soft and sweet? Handmade by Amy, they come in different colors and are around $12 US (or less if you buy multiples). She also has some adorable bunny hats in her shop, so check it out for your daily dose of cuteness!

Well, I hope I've inspired you to check out these lovely shops, and support handmade businesses as we celebrate Spring this week. Make every holiday handmade! You'll have gifts that you and your family will truly treasure and you'll be helping other families to continue to do what they love.

Happy Easter, everyone!
