Fabric Easter Basket

I have an Easter basket sewing pattern and tutorial for you just in time for Easter! These cute fabric bunny baskets are a fun, easy sewing project to make this Easter. Fill it with Easter treats, books, and gifts for the perfect Easter Gift for the littles in your life.

This Free Easter basket sewing pattern is suitable for even those new to sewing. It is also a great project for kids who could sew it with minimal help. Even the smallest sewists could help you make the pom pom!

Personalize your easter basket with fabric ears to match your child’s personality, Easter outfits, or your Easter decor!

Materials Needed:

  • canvas fabric
  • accent fabric for ears
  • yarn to make pom pom
  • Pattern (see link at bottom of this post)

NOTE: I used cotton canvas fabric to make these. My favourite canvas fabric is painters drop cloths! I buy the natural drop cloths like this one from Walmart. You end up with lots of great canvas material perfect for sewing!


1. Cut out all of your fabric pieces.

2. Sew the ear pieces (one canvas, one accent fabric) right sides together. Turn right side out and top stitch leaving the bottom unsewn.

5. Fold Handle Fabric in half lengthwise and sew along length. Turn right side out and sew along both sides along length of handle.

7. Sew around top of basket, making sure to sew through all layers. Turn right side out.

Making your own pom poms is easy! Here is a link to a great video tutorial by Sheep & Stitch

Use whatever yarn you have at home and you can wrap the yarn around cardboard, or whatever you find at home that works.
