Spring is upon us and so are all the festive holidays of the season. With Easter right around the corner, I wanted to share my scrap fabric Easter basket tutorial that’s easy, fast and fun for kids to try. Using a few scrap materials, you can whip up this scrap fabric Easter basket in no time. If the kids are interested, it’s a great craft to teach dexterity, pattern and patience!
Here’s what you need to make your own scrap fabric Easter basket:
- Cotton material ripped into 1″ wide strips. Your strips can be as long or as short as you like. I used 4 yard long strips to make my little Easter basket shown here. You could double the strips to make a larger basket big enough for an Easter bunny, some candies and a book for Easter morning.
- 1-2 yards of jute rope or cotton cording. I had a bunch of this brown jute rope left over from a Valentine’s Day project that was the perfect gauge or diameter for this craft. A clothesline works great for this too.
