Hey there, I'm Jenny T with simplesewingprojects.com and I'm going to show you step-by-step how to make this basket liner.
First, let's go ahead and gather the supplies you need to make your basket liner. You’re going to need your basket and for your first time making this project it's best to find a basket that’s rectangular and doesn’t have more of a trapezoid look with the edges going outward, okay.
So for this project, we’re going to make a basket liner for rectangular basket. So I have that on hand, your fabric that you want to line the basket with, some sharp fabric scissors, measuring tape, and then of course your sewing machine and some matching thread.
Next, we’re going to measure your basket and this is going to tell you how big to cut your fabric pieces, okay. So you’re going to put your basket in front of you and get a tape measure. And we’re going to consider the left to right the width and from front to back the depth.
So, we’re going to measure from outside edge to outside edge of your basket for the width. When I measure mine, I get 11 inches actually 11 and quarter inches. And the depth I got 10 and quarter inches. Now for your fabric, you’re going to cut a panel for each side here s you have a panel for your front, one for the back and one for each sides; that’s four pieces. At each piece that you cut, it is going to be a half an inch wider than your outside measurements, okay.
So for your front and back panels, I had measured 11 and a quarter inches so I'm going to add half an inch and make that 11 and ¾ inch. In fact it doesn’t hurt to give your liner a little bit of breathing room, a little more than what you need. So make t easy on yourself. I could round this up to 12 inches and just to have an even number, so I would cut two fabric pieces 12 inches wide.
And then or the depth, I have here 10 and ¼ so I could cut it 10 and ¾ inches adding in half an inch or I could just make it easy and just make it 11 inches. SO, I'm going to cut two pieces of fabric that are each 11 inches wide. Now how long, well that’s how long you want your liner to be so, I'm going to measure from the inside bottom up t the top f the basket and down the outside of the basket to how far that I want to have my liner fold over the edge. I want my liner just to fold over two inches. You may want more or less; less would be a little tough. Two inches is kind of the standard but whatever you want, you can customize this to whatever you like. And I got 10 inches so; I need to allow for some fold at the top to clean up the top edge and for the seam allowance. So, I'm going to add at least an inch to that measurement.
So I have 10 inches as the measurements but I'm going to have the fabric cut to 11 inches. I'm going to add an inch. Again, you could add a little bit more if you want, it's just some extra breathing room for mistakes because its really, honestly for a fabric liner you really can't go wrong. You can't make it too big. You can make it too small s make sure that you rounded up your measurements just a little bit, not a lot, not half an inch or more just to you know, if it makes it easier to remember your numbers with whole numbers then do so, okay. So I'm going to cut each of these panels now 11 inches long so all four sides here are cut the same way. That should make t a little easier for you. And you need one more panel for the bottom.
The fifth panel should be the cut width by the cut depth. So again, I decided that I was going to cut my fabric for the width to 12 inches and the depth was 11 inches. So I'm going to cut this bottom piece here 12 inches x 11 inches. So that’s a lot of numbers for you but if you need to play this part f the video over again and it's pretty simple. I'm just going to add a half an inch t each f these measurements and make sure that you’re doing the outside measurements for your basket because if you do the inside, your liner is going to be too small, okay. So now that you have your cut measurements go ahead and cut your fabric one piece for each side and once bottom piece, that’s five pieces and then I’ll show you how to put it all together.
