Easy DIY Personalized Easter Basket Liner

Happy Spring! With a new grand-baby in the family, I can’t help but get all giddy about making up an Easter basket this year. As you know, I love to personalize gifts and with just a t-shirt and a DIY iron-on vinyl, this liner is super easy to make!

What I used:

What you’ll need: sewing machine, scissors, straight edge, computer/vinyl cutter, iron. 

What I did:

Lay inside out t-shirt flat and using a straight edge, draw a line beneath the t-shirt arms. This is the sewing guide…simply a straight line.

Sew along the line.

Then cut straight across above the sewn line (right below the armpits of the t-shirt).

Flip right side out. 

Place the seam inside of the basket and fold the edges of the t-shirt over the basket to create a liner. Measure how much room you have horizontally and vertically to get an idea of your iron on design’s size. I kept mine under 2″ high by 7″ wide.

Using the Silhouette Design Studio software, I created a graphic with name and a cute little bunny shape.

You’ll need to mirror the text and image by right clicking and selecting “flip horizontally”.

Double check the size. (One sheet of iron-on vinyl is going to make a LOT of decals!)

Load vinyl into the machine shiny side down. The shiny side is actually the transparent cover. Vinyl is the matte side (facing up).

Send the design to ‘cut’. Adjust setting for heat transfer material and “cut”.

When cutting is complete, remove vinyl from machine. Trim to a manageable size.

Weed away the excess vinyl. The decal will show a backwards design on the transparency.

Smooth out the t-shirt liner with the open end facing you. Place the iron on decal towards the bottom, centered.

Cover with a cotton cloth (or the scrap t-shirt material) and iron according to instructions that came with the iron on vinyl.
