A plastic canvas project that is easy to do and large enough for a child to do. The pattern is for size 7 plastic canvas or 7 holes per inch. You could do the pattern in size 5 or 5 holes per inch for ease for a child or very low vision person or elderly adult.
You use a blunt needle with a large hole to accommodate the yarn. This is why I do plastic canvas because it is a lot easier for me to see as I am legally blind, I only have some vision in one eye.
There are a lot of cute holiday designs at Pinterest for beginners and experienced. I have saved over 1,000 patterns on my different Pinterest boards. My main account is here. The Halloween Board is here.
This is a good size basket, palm size. A cute Halloween basket for individual serving at a place at the table or for a small child.
Easy and simple to do a young child age 6 and up could do this project. Some adult supervision if they are inexperienced as to the construction part. You may have to cut out the plastic canvas for the very young child.
The piece at the bottom is the bottom of the basket which you do not add yarn to it.
You work the all the pieces without adding yarn to the edges.
After assembly then you can add the yarn to the exposed edges.
When I sewed all the pieces together I used the yellow to add the four yellow rows of each of the four sides and bottom. Then I sewed the remaining parts of the pieces with the orange. You do not add yarn to the bottom piece. Lastly I added the white and edges of the white handle.
As you can see in the pattern, it has you make the funny face on each of the main sides. I did not care for the face, so I omitted it.
You can use this same pattern and use any colors to suit the occasion. I have made some for Wedding Favors in the Bride’s colors. An ‘Ombre’ or three or more layers of successively lighter shades of one or more colors ending in a very pale color or white looks really good.
