Wow...it is cold here in Texas!!
What's a girl to do when this crazy weather keeps you inside.??..well make something of course!
I have had this metal basket for years and it has held everything from magazines to firewood.
I thought it would look so much cuter with a cute liner to go in it.
The only way I was ever going to get one to fit was to make it myself.
A few days ago I found a blog that inspired me to make my own!
No..I do not normally sew but I thought I would give it a try. I had all the materials on hand so this
project was FREE!! If I messed it up..no big deal!
This is my best attempt at a tutorial...
|Using my metal basket as a guide I rolled it across the fabric to get|
an idea of how much fabric I would need
|I cut a circle for the bottom a little larger so that I have room to cut and sew|
|These are my cut pieces|
|I sewed the ends together on the long piece (sorry no pic)|
This is the bottom pinned to the long piece..That line is where I traced it on the basket
I used that as my line for sewing
But missing something...
|Of course...a number 5. I made a stencil on my computer and cut it out|
I used black craft paint and a makeup sponge to gently fill in the 5
|Remove the paper and voila..here she is!|
|I love how she turned out!!|
