With Easter only 6 weeks away, we have been designing some Mini Easter Baskets to make using small pieces of felt and ribbon from our stash. We celebrate Easter in a fairly low key way. We usually have a lovely meal with our family and share some little Easter treats. We are always dreaming up new ways to gift a small package of chocolate eggs. We had some sweet Easter bunny ribbon in our stash so combined it with some felt to make little Easter Baskets.
We found some coordinating polka dot ribbon for the handles.
The baskets measure 5 inches wide x 2 1/4 inches high, and are the perfect size to hold a little bag of chocolate eggs.
We shared our first prototype over on our facebook page a few days ago and had lots of requests for a tutorial. So here are our instructions to make your own Easter Basket.
Materials(for one basket):
- wool felt measuring 5 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches
- Easter Bunny ribbon – two lengths measuring 5 1/2 inches (we cut our ribbon at 6 1/2 inches and cut it later in the construction)
- polka dot ribbon – two lengths measuring 5 inches
