Make It Simple

A quick & easy fabric basket for Easter eggs or anything else. Lynda has a blog at http://whimsicalprims.blogspot.com/
Cut 2 contrasting pieces of fabric, 30cm x 15cm. Stitch RST along the length of the rectangle on both sides forming a tube... turn inside out. Stitch together, defining the outside/inside of the bag. (A French Seam could be used to hide the raw edges.)
Turn the body of the bag inside out... pin the bottom straight across... stitch closed & miter the corners to form a base. Turn bag right side out. Fold over a top lip showing a border of the lining on the outside of the bag. Add a handle made with a strip of fabric with 4 buttons... one on inside & one outside on both ends. Add yo yos or other embellishments as desired.

Jana (These bags were made basically the same way, but with placemats. One placemat makes one bag... an extra placemat can be cut to make 3 handles. Appliqued eggs & rick rack were used as embellishments.)
