Rabbit Tie Corner Basket
Project by Lesley Foster at Hook, Stitch, Sew
This tie corner basket will keep your Easter eggs safe from rolling away this Easter. I just couldn’t resist adding some rabbit ears while using this Peter Rabbit themed fabric!
Peter Rabbit Flowers And Dreams fat quarter set by The Craft Cotton Company
1- Draw a rabbit ear shape (17cm from base to ear point) onto a piece of paper and cut out to form your ear template. Next cut out 8 from the dark pink fat quarter and 8 from the white with rabbit detail fat quarter.
2- Take one pink and one white ear and place right sides together, sew around the edges leaving the bottom edge unsewn. Turn out the right way. Repeat with the remaining ears pieces.
3- Take the white with flower detail fat quarter and cut out 8 strips 5x30cm. Take two of the strips, place right sides together and sew down around the edges leaving the bottom edge unsewn. Turn out the right way.
4- Take the light pink, yellow fat quarters and batting and cut so they measure 46x46cm.
5- Place the batting down and then the yellow 46x46cm square down on top right side facing up, take the strips and place one 9cm from the edge of the square, repeat using the remaining strips. Place the pink 46x46cm square right side facing down on top and pin to secure.
6- Sew around the edges leaving a 10cm gap for turning. Turn out the right way and slip stitch the gap to close.
7- Sew a line around 10cm from the top edge of the square to form the base section of the basket.
8- Take one of the ears fold up the raw bottom edge and place 14cm from the edge of the square, with the bottom edge of the ear along the sewn line, sew around to secure. Repeat with the remaining ears.
9- Tie the corner ties to form the basket.
