Easter Basket: Free Pattern and Tutorial


Tangible Pursuits: Easter Basket: Free Pattern and Tutorial

Download the free pattern and tutorial here.


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.
