Dads Day Basket


I made this for my son in law from his kids for Fathers Day...I also entered this for a project at PC Cratfter....you can find all the directons to make this for your dad at this link PCCrafter Newsletter. I love making things my grandkids can give thier parents for holidays...they are
3 1/2 and 15 months old...So it teachs them the joy of giving. I am a giver and enjoy giving small gifts to all my friends and family and new aquaintances...it is what I craft for...ask my friends and they will tell you I leave my mark where ever I go...if only in a small way.
