With easter just around the corner, I am totally in the crafty mood. So here’s a DIY for you:
For this cute easter basket you will need:
two different kind of fabrics (one for the inside, one for the outside)
Cut the pieces of fabric according to this pattern: 21 cm x 14,5 cm. Also cut the batting.
Iron the fusible batting to the outside fabric.
Then sew the outside and inside fabric together, starting with the folding line. Make sure the fabrics face each other. After that, printed sides facing each other, sew around the „whole“ fabric. Leave a part of the seam of the inside open so you can turn the basket inside-out once you’ve finished.
Now fold one bottom corner of the „outside fabric“ so you get a triangle.
Sew a line across the triangle. Repeat on the other side.
Once you’ve done it, cut off the leftover fabric. Now your basket will look like that. Repeat the last steps on the inside fabric.
Turn your work inside-out and close the seam of the inside fabric.
Use the ladder stitch to close the seam.
After some ironing your basket should look like this.
So cute! Now all you have to do is fold the top of the basket and fill it with lovely gifts you have prepared for easter.
Have fun crafting!
