fabric easter baskets

Hello!  This year I thought I would try sewing up some Easter baskets.  I was planning to buy some cute Easter fabric but then thought I should just use the material I have.  I did buy some cute fabric for the liner since I used up all my other pink material I usually use for the liners in bags.  I also added names for personalization.

Here is the first one I made.  I started out with 9 x 12 inch pieces of fabric so these turned out to be good sized baskets with lots of space for goodies.  Now I have to go search for some goodies to add!  I think for this material, the name does get kind of lost with the busy Hello Kitty background.

Here is the second one I made.  The name stands out a lot better.

These baskets are pretty wide too, about 5 inches.

I'm working on another Easter goodie for a little boy.  Hopefully I can pull it off!  Might be a little tricky for a beginner sewer like me.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Cute baskets! Great idea to make fabric easter baskets! At least the hello kitty bags can be used all year round. Hmmm, I guess I should be getting ready for easter...mostly I buy myself the candy!

How cool are these hand sewn baskets! Not only are they adorable, but you can fold them for easy storage between use...cute, clever, and perfect!!

Thanks for the note on using felt in your die cutter. I usually give up after 2 or 3 tries....I'll give it a few more times before I throw in the towel next time. Hopefully I'll have better results. Thanks!

In my eyes you are not a beginner seamstress. Those fabric bags are outstanding!

Totally adorable!! I like the fact that you didn't use Easter fabric, because now they can be used year round!! Awesome job!!
