The best answer to your question is via this tutorial from Urban Threads: http://www.urbanthreads.com/tutorials.aspx?t=Floating+Embroidery

I am not sure if net means the same thing in Australia as it does here in the States but if it does mean a frabric with large holes in it, I think you would be better off sticking with the sheer organza or similar material. 

You will need a design with a lacy or open design.  A heavy or densly filled design won't hang right on the sheer fabric. 

I can't really say how much fabric you would need.  It would all depend on how big the bassinette is, How high you are going to hang it above, how long you want it to drape, and how full you want it to be.

Don't call it trash...I can make something with it!!!
