Are you tired of seeing this fabric yet? As you can tell this fabric is the theme of the baby’s room. I had a lot of extra fabric left over so I wanted to make some basket liners. I really just kind of came up with pattern as I was working. There was a few trial and errors along the way but I really like how they turned out.
So I started off with a basket that looked like this:
The first step is to take your measurements.
My basket was 12 inches for the bottom and long sides. 6 inches deep all around. 7 inches for the shorter sides. For the side pieces I wanted there to be an overlap of fabric so you will need to add an extra 2 inches plus .5 for the seam.
Next you need to cut out your pieces. My bottom piece was 12 x 7. I needed 2 long side pieces that measured 12 x 8.5. I also needed 2 shorter side pieces that measured 7 x 8.5.
