Fabric Basket and Fabric Eggs Tutorials

wiltshire-daisy-fabric-eggs

I mentioned in my last post that I’ve been playing with some new fabric from Riley Blake called Wiltshire Daisy by Carina Gardner.

It’s such a pretty palette for spring, I decided that I would make some spring-time accessories and decorations.

Fabric Basket and Eggs Tutorials

This project was originally written for the Riley Blake Design Team.

This collection comes with three really great patchwork “cheater” prints, so I used them for the baskets to give them the look of a pieced patchwork basket, with out any of the work. (I’m so smitten with the colors in this one!)

And what is a basket without eggs this time of year? So I used more of the prints from the collection to make a variety of fabric eggs. For these eggs I used this great fabric egg tutorial and pattern by Retro Mama. I have looked at this pattern and idea for year and finally got around to giving it a try. It’s kind of addicting!

It’s hard to believe that March is nearly over and Easter is almost here. It’s one of my favorite holidays, so no complaints here!

Wiltshire Daisy also comes with a CUTE printed panel doll outfit for your favorite 18″ (American Girl-type) doll. Look at this cute tutorial by Girl Inspired! Wiltshire Daisy is arriving in shops now. Online it is available from the Fabricworm, and precuts available from Southern Fabrics.

    Hey Amy, im leaving comments everywhere hoping you get one of them. Printed the template and there is no notch at the bottom and the instruction don’t explain. From looking at the pictures I am guessing a 2″ notch is required, is that right?

      Yes, that’s right. Just updated the template. (d’oh!)

    Hi Amy, I don’t know if you monitor the comments on Riley Blake. I’m guessing, judging by your cutting mat, that we should cut a 2 inch square away from the corners?
    Love the shape of this basket!

      Yes! 2″ x 2″ square. So sorry for leaving that part off. I just updated the file with the template to include that part. Thanks for the heads up! (This is why I shouldn’t push deadlines or try to do things late at night. :/)

    I didn’t need a basket so I enlarged the pattern to make a grocery bag.

    Amy do you really like that blue rotary cutter ?? Dont you find it rather flimsy or unstable ?

      Yes. I love that rotary cutter. It’s an OLFA which I find are usually really sturdy.

    made one of these using old quilts that were my Grandmothers, too worn to use but too sentimental to throw away.
