If you are anything like me and you have some straw baskets in your home and you have less than 2 hours to create something custom looking, this pattern you will just ADORE. Especially if you love working with laminates, especially RBD laminates..I think they are one of the best out there. You can also do this with fabric, the only addition will be hemming your ruffle. I have this thing for gingham, especially this year, so this basket liner for me has many uses. Great for all the apples I will be needing for pie making, my cat, Sumatra, thinks it is her new cat bed, perfect for some stash and also wonderful addition to a powder room to place clean towels in. I will be creating another as soon as I get out to purchase another basket from Micheals.com I am thinking this would be an ideal anniversary gift for a daughter too, with some new towels...Yeah I like that idea very much. You will note I also used this pattern to make a great liner for my bike basket... YOU sew Matter....
