- Scrapbook paper or construction paper
- Template Printable from PolkaDotMaker’s small takeout box HERE (cut off the round tab when you are cutting the template out)
- Embroidery floss (thread)
- Darning needle (AKA a large sewing needle)
- Glue and/or tape
Step 1. Cut out the printable and use it as a template on your paper. (It may be helpful to lightly tape them together, so they don’t shift)
Step 4. Thread your needle, and lightly sketch out the design you want to embroider on your basket using small dots. Start stitching! I’m doing a cross-stitch pattern.
Step 5. Fold a strip of paper in half to your desired width. Again, lightly sketch out your design, and start sewing. (tip; when you are making a stitch, hold the paper taut when the needle goes through. This will make a nicer looking hole)
Step 6. Tie your thread off, and tape or glue both ends of the handle to the basket.
Voila! Your basket is finished! Kit loves hers-she is already plotting how to beat her sisters and roommates in the annual easter egg hunt!
Great job, Natalie!
