LaDesigns2 CLOSED!



Are you looking for the perfect Easter basket that will last years to come? You are going to love this shop. I was so impressed with LaDesigns2 fabric baskets that I had to do an interview. Here is what I learned.

Mama Snow-"What do you sell in your Etsy shop?"
Lee Anne- "I sell handbags, holiday and gift baskets, key fobs and pin cushions so far! I am always thinking up new ways to use my fabric stash!"

Mama Snow-"How long have you been sewing and creating?"
Lee Anee-"I have been sewing since I was very young about 40 years. My mother taught me!"

Mama Snow-"Since it is Easter and you have a wonderful collection of baskets, what got you inspired to create custom baskets?"
Lee Anne-"My own children inspire me daily! Once when I was sewing a purse around Halloween, my daughter who was 8 at the time said, why don't you make me a trick or treat basket? I did and wound up making all her friends one too! So, that was the beginning of the baskets!"

Mama Snow-"What motivated you to to sell your beautiful work?"
Lee Anne-"Well, I used to teach full time before my kids were born. After that, I was a stay at home mom. I have always loved to sew for my kids. Money was tight and all my friends said you should be selling these creations, so I got started on Ebay and then Etsy.

If you are loving Ladesigns2's shop, you can find her baskets posted around the holidays. I think the hallween baskes would also be fun to have. LaDesign2 also welcomes custom orders!

I love the "Custom Boutique Pink Polka Dot Easter basket Lollipopz" for my daughter. I'm happy to see boy's designs too! I love one or two for my son also. Thanks! vac924@gmail.com

Janet and Maya said...

These are SO darling!!! I can't wait to see when she has more totes available for mommies too (wink, wink).

My favorite Easter basket is the Lollipopz Bunnies. My daughter would love this, especially because it also has lambs on it. The description says "perfect fabric for a little Easter basket!
Love love love this fabric by Hoffman! All the little animals are so cute! Such springy colors too! The lining fabric is a fun yellow polka dot! A grosgrain bow, some tulle and ric rac tied to the handle make this one extra girly!"

Sounds perfect to me, I hope I'll be lucky on April 3rd.

Please tell Lee Anne that I love her pin cushions - almost makes me want to sew. I'm trying to think up alternative uses for pin cushions, they are SO pretty.

I'm going to give my favorite first and then a couple of backups because I noticed the first two I picked only have 1 in stock: The Custom Boutique Boys Airplane Bunnies Easter Basket Retro Look Lollipopz; Custom Boutique Boys FROGS Easter Basket Lollipopz; and finally in the event neither of the first two were available the Girls Custom Boutique Easter Basket Tulips Pink And Green Lollipopz. I love the fabrics she uses. I use the Google Blogger ID method of entry, but in case you need it anyways here it is

Thanks for this great giveaway opportunity.
