Have been busy lining baskets in readiness for the fairs. The others that I lined ages ago all sold so I have been collecting vintage baskets on my travels. They are surprisingly easy (for my severe lack of sewing skills anyway) to line with fabric, it is just the finishing off that can be a bit fiddly!!
I am quite pleased with the results.
The larger shopping basket is fully lined with vintage eiderdown fabric and finished with press studs either side to hold it in place, they are covered with eiderdown fabric covered buttons. I have made a Vichy check lavender heart as a finishing touch.
The smaller basket I have lined with a Vichy check bottom and used antique Toile De Jouy for the sides of the basket. I stitched elastic around the edges to hold it in place and again finished it off with a covered button and Vichy check lavender heart.
Hope you like them, just several more baskets to go (and a great deal more swearing probably)!!!
Hope you are all having a great week.
