Handmade & DIY Easter: Plush Cotton & Soft Wooden Toys for Baby's 1st Easter

There’s just something about Easter that beckons to handmade outfits and toys. I remember as a little girl receiving a new outfit that my mom had sewn and a special, heirloom-worthy toy to treasure for years. (As well as the chocolate. Oh, the chocolate.)
Since giving little babies chocolate (but you will let your toddlers have wee tast, won’t you?) and candy probably isn’t a good idea, what else are we to do besides bestow upon them something warm, something soft, something unique and lovely?
Made with love by you or one of the featured artisan’s in this round-up, I am sure you’ll find something perfect for your own little one’s 1st (or 2nd, or 3rd, or…) Easter!

Something for everyone...

Whether you are an avid crafter or simply a lover of the quality and beauty that comes with buying handmade – this round-up is for you!
