EASTER Chick Bag/Basket

 Outdated Easter Place mats............

 into super cute over-the-chair Easter bags. 

This was super easy, cheap and fast. Even if you don't have the animal shaped place mats, these would still be easy to make. I just Found some matching fabric from my stash and made a back and the two straps. Measured the straps to make sure they were long enough to fit my dining chairs. I used heavy fusible web for stability in the back piecing and straps. Left the top open and filled with Easter goodies for my kiddos.


  1. Love this. Maybe include a tutorial for those of us who do not have a round placemat???

  2. Um... this is GENIUS!!!! LOVE it! NEED it!!!

  3. Great idea! Now if I only had some cute placemats...

  4. Wonderful! Easy and cute! It could be even a nice bag for a baby...

  5. Oh my goodness- adorable! Love it.

    Creative and Curious Kids!
