Basket

Mum recently gave me a basket that she had when I was a baby. I thought it would be perfect for keeping my knitting organised in the living room (I like to knit when watching the TV).

I found this lovely piece of fabric in a rummage bin for £1, it was the right size to line the basket, so after much fiddling I managed to get it the right shape and size to attach to the basket. Sewing the lining on wasn't as hard as I thought it would be, the basket weave is quite loose at the top, only the corners were a little tricky.


I am very pleased with the finished result, unfortunately the basket is slightly too tall to slide under the sofa out the way, but at least it looks pretty on the living room floor.
