Sewing Basket Liners

Hello Everyone!

I have a quick and easy project to share today.  

If you've stopped by my blog often you've probably know how much I adore wire baskets.  I prefer them over a wicker basket any-day but sometimes it's nice to be able to hide contents of a basket which is tricky with a wire basket.

Every now and then basket liners become a necessary.  Not only is it a fun look, they are simple to make.

The basket I'm sewing a liner for today is a small one I picked up at Walmart a while back.  It's only 6 inches tall and the opening is about 5 3/4 inches wide.  Whatever size basket you'll want to make a liner for this tutorial should give you a general idea of what to do as long as it's a circular shaped basket.  Just adjust your fabric size to fit.

Here is what the basket looked like before adding a liner:

And here it is with a liner . . . cute right!

I've tried a picture tutorial format this time to make things quicker.  
Please let me know if you like this style or not for future tutorials, thanks!

Follow along below to see how I sewed the basket liners.

And that is it!  
You now have a pretty new liner for your basket.

Here is an example of what it looks like in the basket with a cuff.

And here is an example without a cuff.

Using the liner either way would work out great I think.

You can see that I made the liner slightly shorter than the top of the basket.  Personally, that's the way I like it.  You could always adjust things to your preferences.

I prefer using the liner cuffed and am thinking they are prefect for spring!

Have a great day,

bye now,
