I also like to line them. They are usually a bit rough on the inside for storing yarns and fabrics so I love jazzing them up with a different fabric.
This little chap has been sitting on the shelf for a while. I sprayed it with a bit of metallic gold and lined it with a fabric that was gifted to me.
I seamed the top and ran a ribbon through so that I could tie a bow at each side
A lucky co-incidence is that there is a super little gap at each side to keep my spare knitting needles tucked in out of the way.
The basket has a flat plywood base - so it was easy to cut the base the correct shape and gather 2 side panels to fit. The lining sits in the basket beautifully!
