Baskets are great for both organizing household items and hauling laundry, you can line them with fabric for easier cleaning and to dress up the baskets a bit for display. They are easy enough to sew using bright and cheery fabrics or make something a little more decorative with elegant pleats and ribbons. Here’s a collection of tutorials for making liners to fit both round, rectangular and square shaped baskets. Enjoy!
