Instructions for Mini Easter Baskets
Begin by using the free PDF file to cut out the basket shapes. You can either cut with your Cricut or a sharp pair of scissors. If you’re using a digital cutting machine, open the SVG file in your program and cut the face/ears/tail vinyl pieces.
If you don’t have a cutting machine, you can always use fabric paint to hand-draw the face details as well. Gluing a pompom on the back for the tail would look adorable!
Let’s assemble the basket now! Place the back piece edge onto the side piece edge and sew from the top down. Make sure to stop about 1/4″ from the bottom! Continue sewing all the sides together until Mini Easter Basket is formed.
Position the bottom square in place and sew around the edge to finish your basket. Depending on your sewing skills level, you may need to trim away excess felt from the bottom.
These adorable Mini Bunny Easter Baskets can be fill with a tiny bit of artificial grass and mini egg candies. Or what about just a single decorated egg for an easy place setting?
I’m planning on adding mini toys and pencils for my kids. They’re going to love it! Hope you enjoy making and using these for your Easter party!
