Ideal for egg hunts in the garden or around the house, these are all quick makes so you should still have time to get sewing and make something extra special for little ones!
We’ll begin with some more structured baskets for the more advanced beginner, then we will show some very easy-to-sew bunny bags and even a couple of projects that your little kiddies could join in with and help to make.
This fabric bunny basket by Craftsy is playful and fun, using the bunny ears as the handles of the basket. Simply tie the ears together to make a continuous strap your child can carry as he searches for hidden eggs, or use it as a tote to carry your stash or kids toys.
This little fabric basket from Nana Company could be useful all year-round, but it would be perfect at Easter and is happiest when filled with chocolate eggs! Easy to sew and you can make it from fabric offcuts.
Go Easter egg hunting with this cute tie-strap basket by Simply Notable. Once the basket has happily been emptied into the tummy of an excited kiddie, this basket could be used for holding bits and bobs all year round until the next Easter bunny arrives.
Less structure and quick to make, this Easter bunny ear bag by Just Jude designs will not disappoint the little ones this Easter. You don’t have to use Easter printed fabric, just find some great colourful scraps. The cute drawstring feature will hold all those chocolate finds in place.
A tisket and tasket, why not make these adorable felt Easter Baskets by The Sewing Directory? If you are a beginner to sewing this is the perfect project for you. Working simply with felt, buttons and basic stitching you can create an adorable handmade bag. Because this is so easy to make why not make some with your kids or grandkids?
This mini bunny bag by Style Me Pretty is just perfect for little hands who can’t quite hold on a big Easter basket, but are still eager to get in on the Easter treat fun. This bag is sweet and oh-so-easy to customise that your little Easter bunnies will be delighted with it.
These little Easter basket gift ideas are lovely keepsakes to bring many years of Easter hunting fun. They could even be passed down to the next lot of egg hunters. Use up little scraps of fabric and enjoy getting creative this Easter!
