... a wash basket lining

We have needed a new wash basket for ages.  Our bedroom looks lovely but our wash basket was monsterous and ugly.  We have been looking for a new one for what feels like forever but couldn't find exactally what we wanted.  The big hope being that the really good basket stall at the Malvern Spring Show would have one for us and bless them, they did.  So this beauty came home with us and needed lining.  A small sewing challenge as it is tapered and not very even due to it's lovely basketiness.  I am really pleased with the finished article - a triumph of £1.50ish a metre calico from Ikea.  Lovely buttons from my button collection and more of that free cotton I got with my machine and homemade bias binding means this cost less than £2 - super!
