Easter Basket: Free Pattern and Tutorial
UPDATE: If you don't use Facebook, you can receive the pattern for free by subscribing to my email updates using the form in the right-hand column of this page. You will receive a link to download the pattern after you confirm your subscription.
UPDATE (12/8/14): This pattern is also now available for download on Craftsy (affiliate link).
To make the basket you will need three fat quarters (or regular quarter yards, it doesn't matter), two sheets of plastic canvas, some batting (about 1/2 yard) and two buttons.
You can use brighter colors than I did for a kids Easter basket. My first attempt at designing this basket was done in much more fun colors.
Unfortunately it didn't turn out the way I wanted and I didn't have enough of those fabrics to make another one.
But I like this version too. It's just a little more sophisticated.
I especially like the button.
