Create Basket Base

Place one felt egg face down, and affix felt-covered basket base strip in a U-shape along the bottom edge of the egg using hot glue or tacky glue (image 1). This creates the bottom of the basket (image 2).

Add Finishing Touches

Attach the second felt-covered egg shape on the other side of the felt strip to enclose the basket. Print and cut tie and bow templates, and attach felt to them. Glue to the front of the baskets, and add a ribbon for the handle.
