Finish It Up Friday :: Easter Baskets


Happy Friday everyone and happy Easter (or Passover or just weekend ;-)
We (myself and my small design assistant) whipped up some Easter baskets this week.
She chose lining fabrics and I sewed - we're a great team.

They really do sew up in a jiffy and if you're making multiples they take even less than an hour.


I used 1.5" cotton webbing for the handles (super quick and easy). I placed my handles centered on the sides instead of the ends for easier egg gathering. I also shortened the handles to 8".
Because I used two lighter weight cotton fabrics (quilting cotton) my interfacing choice was fusible fleece on both the lining and exterior fabrics. I find using the fleece on all pieces makes for a sturdier basket.

That cute bunny fabric? A cotton tablecloth from Target for the win!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. So cute. I would never think of using a table cloth. I need to start thinking outside the box. Thanks for sharing.
