I finally, finally made something for myself, yay!
I bought these 2 baskets to help keep the mess by my side of the bed tidier but they both had pully little sticky outty snaggy bits that ruin nice work so they needed liners.


This is nice and big for balls of yarn.


The smaller one has an underlayer of fleece so I can stick pins and needles into the sides.


I used some of my favourite fabric for them both, this one is so funny Cheesy.

Wow! You've made them both so nicely fitting to their respective baskets! Great thinking about the fleece lining for needles, too.

And the laundry fabric is adorable. What a naughty owl!

Wonderful idea for taming the pully little sticky outty snaggy bits!  Love the laundry line fabric!

Thanks all Smiley. I worked on them for half the day employing all my pattern drafting skills from school. The big one took 7 carefully drafted pieces to exactly match the basket shape. Both have a draw string to tighten them around the basket edge so the liners will stay in place.

I adore that silly owl fabric but the blue spiral is an old favourite, it almost looks batik. I'm so glad to have used some of my treasured stash for myself, I will feel happy every time I look at those.

Only do it if you love the basket, seriously. This scrappy quilted fabric version that Mistress Jennie recently made looks like a better bet. It would use up more fabric, can be made from scraps, and best of all has flat sides so more than one of them could stand together on a shelf. Believe me, I am tempted to change all my snaggy wicker out for a few of these.
