Wicker Laundry Basket With Linen Liner

Don't let an outdated basket liner keep you from taking that wicker beauty home. With just a few materials, you can replace the liner with a pattern and fabric that fits your style and home decor to a T.

Materials Needed:

  • seam ripper
  • original basket liner
  • fabric pen
  • cotton twill tape
  • fabric
  • needle and thread

Steps

1. Use a seam ripper to carefully pull apart the original liner to use as a pattern. Lay the chosen fabric right side down and trace around the pattern pieces. Cut around each section, leaving 1/2 inch all the way around for seam allowances.

2. Pin and stitch the side panels together.

3. Fold over the top edge, and pin and stitch the tie pockets in place.

4. Sew the bottom to the sides.

5. Feed the original tie or cotton twill tape through the tie pocket. Put the liner inside the basket and tie the ends in a bow.
