BeaOrganized – Make Baskets Functional!

Do you have baskets you have collected that end up being not as functional as hoped due to the holes in the basket? Or perhaps a wood or wire crate that things just slide through? Well today we have a great solution for these problems! Try lining the basket or crate with fabric.

1. Cut a fabric piece that is the size of the bottom of the basket (with 1/2″ seam allowance).

2. Cut fabric pieces the size of each side of the basket, include 3 extra inches on the top for the part that folds over (again include a 1/2″ seam allowance on all sides).

3. Sew the pieces together in the shape of the basket.

4. Hem along the top of the pieces.

5. Insert the lining and fold over the tops of the basket.

This idea will allow you to store virtually anything in your basket! Think yarn, fabric scraps, paper crafting tools, extra supplies, you name it! The picture below even shows fruit displayed in the kitchen, so think outside the craft room as well! Good luck and thanks for reading!
