Another Divided Easter Basket

Last week I told you I had another one of these divided baskets cut out to sew into a second Easter basket for my girls. This one is for my oldest...


Still loving Anna's basket pattern.


Since I used quilting cotton for my baskets, I went with Anna's recommendation to use both fusible interfacing (I used Craft Fuse 808) and fusible fleece on the exterior pieces of the basket. It really gives the basket a lot of body. Another tip... I had a really hard time finding white cotton webbing for the handles, so I used fabric paint to paint the "natural" colored webbing that I was able to find. It worked really well, so I may use fabric paint again on future basket handles to coordinate the webbing with the fabrics.


I absolutely love these Easter baskets! Can't wait to see them all filled up on Easter morning.

Oh, your divided basket turned out so sweet, I love your fabric design. I did not realize you had started designing your own fabric. How exciting. I have purchased from Spoonflower before and have been very pleased.

So cute, Gwen! Still loving on our fabrics, too :) After you posted the last one, I had a dream that I woke up and I actually had one of these baskets in every room. No kidding. Crafting has even taken over my dreams I guess ;)

I think the turquoise is my fave. Your girls are going to be delighted on Easter morning- by the baskets most of all~ especially since they love when you sew for them. :)

I agree with everyone else! I hope your girls enjoy their baskets. The teal is also my favorite. :)
