SUPPLIES NEEDED:
Plastic Canvas Sheet 7-mesh
Plastic Canvas 3" round
Yarn
Tapestry Needle


INSTRUCTIONS:
STEP 1: CUTTING PLASTIC CANVAS PIECES

Side: 50 holes x 9 holes from 7-mesh plastic canvas sheet
Handle: 48 holes x 2 holes from 7-mesh plastic canvas sheet
Bottom: To make the basket bottom, take the 3” round plastic canvas piece and remove 2 threads all the way around. You can leave this unstitched or finish it with thread.

STEP 2: BASKET SIDE
With the 50 x 9 piece of plastic canvas, stitch with desired color in the continental stitch leaving 3 threads blank at both short ends. A tutorial on how to stitch the continental stitch is here.

Make this piece into a circle by overlapping the unworked threads and stitch together using the continental stitch.

STEP 3: HANDLE
With the piece of plastic canvas that is 48 holes x 2 holes, use a straight stitch over the middle threads.

Then, use an overcast stitch to cover the two long sides of the handle. For a video on how to do the overcast stitch, click here.

STEP 4: JOINING SIDE AND BOTTOM
Place the round side piece on top of the round bottom piece. Join them together using the whipstitch. Learn how to do the whipstitch, here.

STEP 5: ATTACH HANDLE
Place the handle on the basket and tack it in place with a few stitches.

The doll Easter basket is finished and ready for doll role play.
