Fill With Goodies And Close The Surprise
This sweet fabric basket is perfect for collecting chocolate eggs, or fill with a surprise and close the drawstring. Use Easter holiday themed fabrics, or fun colorful prints and use it as a picnic basket or lunch tote. You can also remove the handle and use it for a basket on a dresser or table.
Charm squares in a sweet fabric collection such as Riley Blakes Happy Ever After, are so cute, and perfect for this project. Find similar fabrics, or use what you have to cut 20 x 5 inch squares.
Not only for kids, this adorable lunch basket is great for anyone and has so many uses around the home. I love the idea that the top can be closed up.
If making for picnics, day trips and car travels, included in the pattern is insulated fabric for hot/cold, of which you will be needing 25 1/4″ x 18 1/2″ for the main part of basket. Keeps food fresh, and also prevents chocolate eggs melting.
The basket is large enough at 9″ x 9″ square and 9″ tall, to enjoy and have many uses. The Clover and Violet design is available as a free pattern, which is simple and easy enough for beginners to follow, while enjoying the patchwork and quilting fun.
