Eleven Egg-cellent Easter Basket Tutorials

As you might have noticed, my family isn’t exactly traditional and the way we celebrate our holidays isn’t very traditional either.  In fact, instead of a traditional Easter holiday, this year we are headed to the beach for a weekend of camping and we will have our Easter Egg Hunt around the campsite. I hope to have a tutorial for a fabulous Beach Towel Tote coming soon.

I’m also not a big fan of the giant pink Easter baskets filled with pounds of plastic grass. Messy, ugly, and what the heck do you do with them after Easter.  So this year I decided to make fabric baskets for each of my kiddos.  When Easter is done, we can use them as storage in the bedrooms for toys, socks, or school supplies.

I’ve been scouring the internet for brilliant fabric basket designs and below are my favorite finds!  Let me know which you love the best and send me some photos if you decide to make some of your own!

The first basket tutorial I found is a fairly traditional Easter Basket design from CraftyGemini.  Just adorable!

I just love these baskets from Sew Mama Sew!  They remind me of fortune cookies!

 

My practical, organizer side just loves the boxy and sturdy look of this basket from Edith & Kaye!

 

Here is another more traditional Easter Basket design, but with some great looking and versatile fabric.  This design is from Melly Sews.

I might not get to these before Easter, but I know my kids would go crazy for their own bicycle baskets.  What a great way to carry snacks and a few sand toys when we head to the park.  This great idea comes from Noodlehead!

My final find is this GORGEOUS woven basket from Mister Domestic.  It looks a bit more time consuming, but oh my goodness what a great looking basket you’ll have!
