Being the last minute person that I have been this month I am just now creating Easter baskets for my kiddos. I got this magazine called Chasing Fireflies sent to my house a while back and they have the cutest kid’s stuff. I saw an adorable personalized Easter basket that I decided to replicate. It was a little felt basket that had been embroidered with a child’s name.
Here is the original one from the Chasing Fireflies catalog.
8” felt basket from Total Class Creative
Bunny ear pattern click here
Scrap of pink felt
Heat transfer material
Hot glue gun
2 black buttons
1. Print out the bunny ear pattern and then cut two white felt ears.
2. Using the Silhouette machine cut out your child’s name out of heat transfer material. Iron it on the wool setting onto the felt ear you just cut out.
3. Using three strands of embroidery floss stitch (using a blanket stitch) around the ears and the top of the basket.
4. Using a little bit of hot glue attach the ears in place gluing them underneath the top of the felt basket.
5. Cut a piece of pink felt in the shape of a nose and hot glue that in place as well. Sew on two black buttons for the eyes.
6. Using the Silhouette machine cut out black heat transfer material for the mouth as well. Iron it in place.

Absolutely beautiful! Great job in copying the “real one”. Love it!!!! You are obviously very talented!
LOVE these! So sweet!
You don’t even need a Silhouette to do this! You could buy iron transfer letters and go from there! Thanks for sharing!
I like version better. The longer ears ae just plain cuter and you can tell that it’s a bunny.
This is absolutely adorable!
Hey there…I meant to send you the link. I love how they turned out. My kids have been playing with them all day hiding their eggs and finding them and throwing them in their baskets. I finished Isaac’s up yesterday. His is blue.
Great knock-off! Very cute!
I just saw this unfortunately after Easter had passed. I would love to make this for my granddaughter next Easter, however, the link that is provided no longer is available? Would you be able to email me the pattern and would like to know how you sewed the seams – especially on the inside, it looks so flawless!
Thanks a bunch!
