Easters next month, and i wanted to get a head start by doing some easter baskets^^
can be a nice project to do with your kids, set up the basket/bag and let them do the decorating part(:
you need 5 basic parts:
-sides, 2x (6.75inx5in)
-bottom #2 ,1x (6inx5in)
-bottom cardboard, 1x (6inx5in)
-handle, 1x (2.5inx18in)
-long backfront& bottom, 1x (18.5inx6 3/8in)
*parenthesis -->the measurements i used but you can alter them if you wish to make your bag smaller or bigger(:
*im making 3 baskets so theres 3x the materials needed in the picture:o
in the center of the biggest piece, hot glue the cardboard pice, and on top of the carboard the bottom#2 piece.
this will give the bag some sturdiness(:
you may use a sewing machine but i just did a blanket stich to sew up the 2 side pieces.
fold the handle piece lonways and sew. then sew on to the sides
if your sewing came out a little too crooked like mine >.< glue in some felt bows or flowers to hide it>.<
print out an easter egg, chick, and/or bunny to put as decoration(:
trace on felt and decorate.
then hot glue onto bag(:
*if yuou want to make it more sturdy like me because i wanted them sticking out of the basket, you should add an extra layer of felt on the back, and then glue to basket.
and thats all there is to it(:
happy early easter!^^
