How to make a basket liner that FITS!

How to make a basket liner that FITS!

Romel walks us through making a basket lining that actually fits. Shape matters! Most baskets I pick up from Goodwill or charity shops are not perfectly rectangular -- and from what I found for online tutorials, nobody addresses this!

 So we did.

I hope you have fun making a liner with us.


To do / Equations:

1. Measure the height of your basket and add the amount of overhang you want plus seam allowance. (For my tutorial my basket was 5" high, plus 2" overhang desired, + 1/2" seam allowance.) Let's call this measurement "X".

2. Draw lines all around the basket at this measurement. "X"

3. Measure the difference between the bottom of the basket and the top of the basket. (Mine was 1" larger on top than the bottom.) Let's call this "C".

4. Take "C" and split it in half = this equals the amound you will need to angle the corners. For me, it's 1/2" on each side of the corner.    1 divided by 2 = 0.5

5. Draw and angle your corner lines, then cut JUST INSIDE the line by 1/4" for seam allowance as I show in the video.

6. Sew each corner right sides together.

7. Hem if desired. Plop the liner into your basket & repeat to make more.

SO FUN!  These are PERFECT for craft faires, to corral your items and make your booth look organized.
