My youngest son turns six on Friday, and he's been counting down the days for months. Seriously. He's more than a little excited about his birthday.
At our house, you get Legos. No more other toys that get broken and lost and become useless. It's all about the Legos around here. And he's getting some. But you also get at least one handmade gift from mom or dad, and I thought he'd like a basket for his bed. To put "stuff" in. Most likely books.
He's currently a HUGE fan of the Hulk, but no Hulk fabric, so I went with his second favorite: Iron Man.
I used the One Hour Basket tutorial (free on Craftsy) by Hearts and Bees. Super simple, y'all. Probably less than one hour!
And then there was leftover Iron Man fabric, so I made him two Open Wide pouches (smallest size) for his cash. And slipped some cash in one, treats in the other.
I know I said I'd make him a messenger bag, but he never liked any of the patterns I showed him. So a basket it is.
Checking this one off the 3QFAL list.
