Easy Felt Easter Basket

**UPDATE: Super thank you to everyone who entered our giveaway! The winner is # 2, Jessica, who said "My favorite Easter tradition is sitting down for a nice easter meal with my family. Everyone dressed in their Easter best. Love it!" Thanks Jessica! We'll be in touch via email soon!

Does your doll still need an Easter basket? With just some felt scraps and a little hand-sewing know-how, it's easy to whip up one of these little baskets. 


I'm using embroidery floss, two colors of felt, and some fun narrow ribbon. 

Start by cutting two circles out of felt: a big one about 4 1/2" across, and a smaller one for the base of the basket, about 1 1/2" across. Stack the two circles on top of each other, making sure to center them, and sew them together with a running stitch. 

Cut some wedges out of the big circle! Try to keep them all about the same size.

Next, whipstitch the slits closed, to make the sides of the basket. 

Sew on a ribbon handle (I made this one by braiding some narrow ribbon, but you could just as easily use a single ribbon.)

Finally, fill your new basket with some fun Easter goodies, and give it to your doll!

 

Now: would you like to win this Easter basket, instead of having to make it? How cool would that be?

 

To enter, just leave a comment on this post, finishing this sentence: "My favorite Easter tradition is..." 

 

We'll randomly pick a winning comment on Monday, 4/21, and contact the winner via email. It's that simple!!

 

Thanks, and have fun crafting and entering!

For Pixie Faire,

Melinda

My favorite tradition is the whole family meeting for Sunrise service and then out for breakfast. Everyone goes home to change clothes and then we all meet up again in the afternoon for a big family Easter dinner and more fellowship together. To me this is the best way to celebrate Jesus’ Resurrection.

My favorite Easter tradition was, as my children are grown now with families of their own, we would hide their eggs, sometimes in the yard, sometimes in the house and when they found them all, they would hide them for us, the parents, to find but we always would count them first :)

My favorite Easter tradition is having all the children sit on the stairs while daddy checked to make sure the Easter Bunny had left, but really he was setting up the camera. Then he told us he had gone and had left some wonderful goodies for us. They would squeal with delight as they ran to the dining room to see their baskets. These years seem to have gone by much too quickly, but they were very memorable and this was a tradition that was followed in my family.

As always, a well designed project and instructions. I’ve already created a basket for my niece for this year, using a thrift store mini-basket and bake-clay eggs and a tiny bunny. However, I’m saving this pattern, because I have other nieces and there is always next year.
My favorite Easter tradition is going to church; then, coming home to a delicious family lunch. The fun of planning little surprises for the children is icing on my cake, which I enjoy prior to Easter day.
