Easter bunny basket.
Based on Easter basket sewing and fabric basket tutorial.
  • fabric scraps
  • 2 buttons
  • 1 pom pom
  • batting
  • fusible interfacing
Follow the fabric basket tutorial to make up the patchwork basket and handles.
My basket has only one handle. My handle is made out of one strip of fabric measuring 2 1/2 in x 9 in and has fusible interfacing.
After assembling the patchwork and sewing the basket, add the embroidery.
If adding a bunny’s tail, stitch now.
I drew my own ears but you can download ears and embroidery pattern(pdf) from disdressed.
You will need 2 pieces of fusible interfacing, 2 of facing fabric and 2 of back fabric.
Iron the fusible interfacing to the wrong side of the front fabric. Sew around ears with both fabrics right fabric facing together. Leave bottom opening to turn inside out.
Attach ears to basket as per photo below. Sew handle in the same way.
Sew the lining following fabric basket tutorial.
