Basket Liners for Baby's Nursery


I'm making new basket liners for 6 baskets that will be in the baby's room. Turning them from boy/blue to girlie/flowers. I love the fabric, and it matches the bedding so well....Can't wait to post pictures of everything all finished. I hope I can get it all done in time before "Baby Girl Johnson" arrives.

I used the basket liner tutorial from Running with Scissors. I didn't cut my existing liner, but traced it onto paper and then used the paper pattern to cut out my new fabric.

My secret to saving fabirc: The ties don't go all the way around the basket.
They just go about 1/2" into the hem.  It still has enough tension to keep the liner on the basket,
but saved tons of FABRIC and TIME.

Top stitched around the top of the basket for a more professional look, and to strengthen the seam.

Oh so pretty! I really like how it turned out!
