They remind me of Easter baskets, and of springtime. The perfect place to hide some Easter candy! I used the Kaia and the Lea patterns for the baskets. Lea is the one with scallops and flowers:
I wanted the scalloped top to be folded down, so I used the floral print as lining. I loved the grass-green stripes, they look like little stems for the flowers.
Diy Easter Basket Pattern Sewing Tips
If you want to sew up a few of these bins yourself, here are a few sewing tips that will help you achieve the same look:
Here are two things to consider when using a directional print for a basket like the ones with the bunnies. First, use the main print as a lining layer. Second: cut the prints upside-down.
No really, trust me. Align those cute little bunnies so they are facing upside down when cutting the fabric. That's because they will be placed on the inside, and then you'll want to fold that bunting top down. See?
Also, I added stronger interfacing to the lining layer for this easter baskets pattern, because it's the lining that will show when the top is folded over. But that's just a personal preference. The easter baskets pattern calls for light-weight interfacing, but if you want to make them sturdy and super stable, feel free to use medium-weight interfacing or fusible fleece.
The little bunny print is so sweet I couldn't help myself but make an additional little coin purse, just for this occasion. Isn't it adorable?
