DIY Fabric Easter Basket
Surprise the little ones in your life with a DIY Fabric Easter Basket!
With Easter around the corner I thought you would enjoy a fun and easy beginner sewing project that is sure to make you the star of the party! This is scrap friendly and would be great for a child’s Easter basket, a gift basket or even a cute organizer for your sewing room or bathroom.
I’m sure you will find a million and one uses for this DIY Fabric Easter Basket tutorial. Invest the time into creating a special handmade gift that will be treasured for years.
The fabrics I used in this video tutorial are from Caravelle Arcade by Jennifer Paganelli for FreeSpirit Fabrics. You can check out her blog here. She designs some beautiful fabrics!
The finished basket I teach you how to make in this video tutorial measures roughly 7″ x 7″ x 5″.
Heads up! If you want to make the cute little boxes you see in my pictures you can create them the exact same way as in the video except you start off with two squares of fabric that measure 10″ x 10″ and for your corner measurements use only 2″. Leave off the handle and that’s it! I love to store my wonder clips (affiliate link) in my little box. You can make these in all different sizes by playing around with your dimensions. So, have fun!
