I think this belongs here?  Huh  Sorry if it's in the wrong place...

Anyhoo, I'm having a baby in a few weeks, and we bought a moses basket on eBay for cheap, but it didn't come with a liner (and all the liners you can get are totally ugly and frilly). So, I decided to make my own - yikes! It was the most complicated thing I've made, especially since pre-made patterns didn't work...I ended up making a rough pattern with paper, and then fitting the fabric pieces in the basket before sewing. I added some batting to the bottom inside (it still needs a decent mattress), and topstitched the whole thing. Aaand it's freaking reversible - seriously, I think being pregnant makes me more insane when it comes to taking on projects.
Pics below - thanks for looking!

The other side (it's reverse from the stripey/circle fabric on the front side..)

This is soo cute!  I'm in a sewing phase now but the last time it hit me was when I was pregnant with my first.  I sewed like a mad woman and also made a liner for a moses basket.  (It's long gone now.  My first child is about to turn 12.)

Nothing is so simple that it can't be screwed up

Thanks everyone!

Drea4545, it really helped me to measure out half of the basket with thin paper and go from there - I also added darts to the each end to get it to sit better.
