Time to start thinking about spring and making some Easter baskets!
Today, Chris and Annette want to share with you adorable pop-up baskets they made while they were at a quilt retreat. These baskets are a fun, easy project which can be used as an Easter basket or as a home décor basket.
The fabric possibilities for these baskets are endless. Annette made an Easter version by using Easter fabric. Chris wanted a basket to display anytime; so she choose a stunning floral fabric.
The pattern is by Fat Quarter Gypsy. At the end of the article are links to the Pop-Up Basket pattern, pop-up refills, and other interesting pop-up projects.

THREE FUN BASKET SIZES!
- Small - 5 1/2 inches
- Medium - 8 inches
- Large - 10 1/2 inches
The baskets are super easy to create with the pattern by Fat Quarter Gyspy. The pattern does not include the pop-up spring; the hardware is sold separately.
OTHER SUPPLIES NEEDED:
- Craft-Tex Extra Heavyweight Stabilizer or equivalent
- 4 Large Safety Pins
- Fusible Medium Weight Stabilizer
- Small Scissor
- Marking Pencil
- Pop-up Spring
- Small 5 1/2 inch basket - FQG121 Small Pop-Up Refill
- Medium 8 inch basket - FQG123 Medium Pop-Up Refill
- Large 10 1/2 inch basket - FQG124 Large Pop-Up Refill
The basket folds away for easy storage by collapsing the spring and tying the handle ends together.
Craft-Tex is used in the handles to give them stiffness. After storage, just press the handles flat with a hot iron and they will stand up again!
These pop-up baskets are so versatile and not only for Easter. Make them for gifts. Make for a baby shower and fill with baby items. Make for a flower girl to carry. Make for Halloween. Or just make it for your home.
SEW MUCH FUN!
