EB kids Clothing Swap-What I received!!!!

EB kids clothing swap outfit #2 was received for my 18 month old Dominic from Claire (Clairebell)....
Claire is such an awesome sewer, I really don't know why she is in the beginners sewers group LOL!!!!!
Dominic received a gorgeous pair of shorts with pockets and snaps and an appliqued T and a hat... I said I liked to dress him in green so the outfit is green elephants and is a cotton canvas fabric, great for boys clothes.........

Dominic is fascinated with the snaps and keeps playing with them lol!!!
he is soo cheeky.
The hat fits perfectly...

Thank you so much Claire it greatly appreciated and we love it and the fabric choice is perfect too.......I now want to get the blue elephants to make an outfit for his older brother!

So I decided on Tuesday 5 days before Easter to make Easter baskets, plenty of time you say, well thing is I had to find a pattern and I had to get material, which is hard in my tiny town..........
So here are the baskets finally done.............
One each for my boys (the bottom blue and green ones) and the other two are for my neice and nephew (hense the name been covered LOL)
The picture and name has been machine embroidered with my embroidery machine!!!!!

The lining.

Full of chocolates YUMMY!!!!!
Oh the ones for my boys are empty still as they will put them on the table tonight before bed for the Easter Bunny.......
Oh and I have also 'killed two birds with one stone' I have not only made a gift for 4 people for Easter but also completed the April Challenge of something with Lining!!!!! YAH!!!!!
