Fun Felt Easter Basket Craft Round-Up

Ok, I realize today is Leap Day and that Easter is still more than a solid month out, but my friend Lauren was asking me about felt goodies for Easter baskets this morning. While I was doing a search, I found some awesome free patterns and tutorials and decided it was time for a felty round-up post. So, let's put winter behind us, look towards the spring and get crafting with some of these fun items!

First, I'll start with my own Easter post from last year. These over-sized felt eggs are perfect for Baby's First Easter. The tutorial for them can be found HERE

If birdie Peeps are more your style, check out this handy pattern from Dusty Bottom Acres. 

If you would like some felt eggs you can fill with candy and other goodies plus have the added bonus of reusing them year after year, One Inch World has you covered

This tutorial from Apine Industries for this super cute bunny is in Italian, but thanks to the wonders of Google Translate, it is still very easy to follow. 

If you need a little chocolate in your life, these delicious bunnies from Playing With Your Food are sure to get your sweet tooth. 

If you are in the market for felted jelly beans in their own box, American Felt and Craft has a lovely tutorial. 

This herd of felt bunny finger puppets from The Purl Bee were too cute not to include. 

And, if you need a basket to fit all your goodies, this pattern from Maya Made takes care of all your spring basket making needs.  

Well, there you have it, plenty of patterns to keep you busy! Time to break out the felt and get your Spring craft on!

Happy Easter Felting!

CLOSED: Anniversary Giveaway--Felt Midwife Play Set from Mama's Felt Cafe and One Month Supply of Oatmeal Butterscotch Lactation Cookies from Mommy's Milkin Cookies ($83 Value, Cookies US Only)

It's so hard to believe that a whole 12 months has passed since I open my Etsy shop last February. This has been an amazing creative journey that has taken me places I haven't expected. My felt tamales and enchiladas are in a Children's Museum in New Hampshire. My Mama's Milk Carton has been in the presence of  midwifery great Ina May Gaskin. I've shipped items as far as Australia, Spain, Nova Scotia, Sweden and all over the United States and have Facebook fans from 19 countries around the world. 

To celebrate this Etsyversary, I wanted to giveaway my most cherished item, the one closest to my heart. Enter this oatmeal and chocolate colored Midwife Play Set. You can read all about the pieces of this midwife kit HERE. 

This makes the perfect gift for the midwife, doula or birth junkie in your life or a great way to introduce new siblings to the tools of a midwife. I also donate a portion of the sale of this set to Citizens For Midwifery. 

To sweeten the deal (and stay on an oatmeal theme), Katie of Mommy's Milkin Cookies is providing a one month supply (3 dozen) of her scrumptious Oatmeal Butterscotch Lactation Cookies. These yummy treats contain 6 galactagogues known for boosting milk supply and are delicious even if you aren't lactating. I recently sent a couple dozen as a gift to a girlhood friend who is pumping for her micro preemie NICU twins. If you are interested in ordering some of Katie's cookies, you can contact her on Facebook or at MommysMilkinCookies (at) Thanks, Katie!

You can also save 20% off an order at the Mama's Felt Cafe Etsy Shop with coupon code ANNIVERSARY at check-out in the month of February. 

To enter the giveaway, just use this handy, dandy Rafflecopter entry form. Contest will run from February 8th to midnight, February 15, 2012, EST. Winner will be notified by email and must respond within 48 hours or a different winner will be selected.

 NOTE: Due to their perishable nature, the lactation cookies will be shipped in the US only. The Midwife set is available to international entrants. If the winner selected is  a US resident, they will win both prizes. If the winner is outside the United States, they will receive the Midwife set and a small set of FELT "lactation" cookies hand sewn by me. A second winner in the US will then be chosen to receive the Mommy's Milkin Cookies prize. If you have any questions, please email me: Mama(at) 

Thank you so much to everyone who has lent their support to Mama's Felt Cafe. I wouldn't be here without you!

Happy Winning!
