The last 2 days I’ve been working on making some Easter baskets for Kev and Rowan. I wasn’t planning on making a DIY post, but I had a few requests from my instagram feed so I am going to try my best to talk you through it. I don’t have any pictures to show the progress but hopefully you’ll catch the idea. They were quite easy. I just made them up as I went along.
I used 6 pieces of felt (8.5×11) for each basket (not including designs on baskets). 4 to make the basket part and 2 to make the bottom. You really only need to attach 2 sheets of felt to make the circumference of the basket but I made it double thickness. I machine sewed the bunny and dinosaur designs on first then sewed the sides together. I used a plate to trace a circle and cut bottom shape. I hot glued two circles together to make the bottom a little sturdier. Then I hand stitched the bottom to the cylinder shape of the basket. I cut a long strip of felt for the handle and hand sewed to the side of basket with a button on top for decoration.
You could really get creative with your designs on the the baskets. I went with a little bunny for Rowan and a Dinosaur bunny for Kev. I can’t wait to fill them with their Easter goodies on Sunday. We do little presents in our house because Rowan doesn’t eat candy and Kev doesn’t like candy (crazy I know). At least I get all the candy for myself.
Absolutely lovely DIY ideas.
Have a wonderful Easter weekend!
