Make an AG doll Easter basket for that special American Girl doll fan in your life. This DIY American Girl doll Easter basket is quick and easy to make.
Looking for AG doll Easter crafts to make for your daughter or granddaughter this year? This DIY doll Easter basket is quick to work up and doesn’t require much plastic canvas or yarn.
This AG doll Easter Basket is an easy enough pattern that young girls can make it by themselves with a little guidance. I have found that plastic canvas projects are wonderful for teaching young girls sewing basics.
I made these fun American Girl doll Easter baskets years ago when my daughters were younger. They would spend hours on end playing with their 18 inch dolls. I just loved making all sorts of American Girl doll crafts for my daughter to use in doll play.
Now those sweet little girls are teenagers and have moved on to other things, but I thought other moms and grandmas might enjoy making some of my projects for their own special little American Girl doll fan.

Supplies needed to make an AG doll Easter basket
- 1 Sheet of 7 Count Plastic Canvas
- 3 inch Plastic Canvas Circle
- #16 Plastic Canvas Needle
- Worsted Weight Yarn in Tan and Pink (or the colors of your choice)
- Hot Glue Gun
- Small Amount of Easter Grass
- Mini Plastic Easter Eggs or Other Embellishments
- Plastic Canvas Hole/Rib Counter (optional)
- Yarn Needle Threader (optional)
Optional: A plastic canvas hole/rib counter and a yarn needle threader are certainly helpful when making this DIY doll Easter basket. However, these plastic canvas Easter baskets can be completed without a yarn threader or hole counter if you don’t have them.
I used Lion Brand Heartland Yarn in the color Great Sand Dunes for the basket. However, feel free to use whatever colors you would like to make an American Girl doll Easter basket. Pink is always a good choice with little girls!
