Easter Baskets from Easter Hats!

Kim at Cheap Chic Home is having a Linky Party for baskets every Friday in March so I have linked up for the party! Every Friday she will be posting fun basket stuff!

Last year I made these really cute girls' hats to sell at Jackie's Boutique. I bought them for $1. at Target and then decorated them with ribbons and flowers and tulle. I put a price of $10. on them. I thought they were really pretty but not one of them sold! So, of course, I have them all right here and need to do something with them. Carol had the idea to turn them into Easter baskets so that's what I did. Here is one that I just turned the hat over on its crown, pushed the sides of the brim down, sewed them down, added a handle and a bow and wallah! a really cute Easter basket. I don't have time to do a tutorial for the handle but will do that next week when I blog about the OTHER kind of basket I made from the hats. I like the other basket I made better so be sure to check back next Friday.

Best wishes. Linda
