Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

You are ultimately responsible for measuring your basket, and providing measurements. Manufacturers do change their sizes even though the basket is similar, it may measure differently than the baskets my patterns are based on.

I want a basket liner with a particular color/pattern/character

If the fabrics I have in stock are not your jam, vibe, or not quite what you want, I encourage you to find fabrics you love and send them to me. While I would love to travel all over the city, scour fabric stores, quilt shops, or online for you, It is extremely time consuming, and ultimately may not find exactly what you desire. I just don’t have that much time! Excellent sources are of course Etsy, Joann’s, Hobby Lobby, Fabric.com, and your local quilt shop. If you want something truly off the wall or unique, there is the glorious Spoonflower.com

I want to send fabric to you, What kind should I buy?

Quilt weight woven fabrics
These are fabrics you’d find in the quilting section of your local fabric store. They are tightly woven, 100% cotton, and have very little stretch. Plus they are washable!

With so many fabrics out there there are a few I do not recommend.
Silk/satin- thin and difficult to work with or clean
Knit - stretches way too much to hold the shape.
Anything sheer- frays and unravels.
Mexican blankets - those cute fringe tassels on the ends have a purpose. They keep the blanket from unraveling. Since my patterns are not square, they come apart unravel quickly. The time and supplies to make one is quadrupled.
Fleece- I have an adverse reaction to fleece. Nails on a chalkboard, makes me nauseous to even touch.

How much fabric do I need?

Well, that depends on your basket type, and the accessories you’d like!
For most baskets, TypeA-E and some large, I need a total of 2 yards. This can be one yard of patterned fabric and one yard of solid.
I can squeeze most cup bands, zippered pockets, and key clips from 2 yards If you want ruffles or drawstrings from your fabric I’ll need an additional 1/2 yard. (So 1/2 yard for drawstrings, and 1/2 yard for ruffles = 1 yard)

Trike baskets need 3 yards total. This can be 1.5 yards of each of two different fabrics. If you want ruffles or drawstrings from your fabric I’ll need an additional 3/4 yards of fabric.

What else about choosing my own fabric should I know?

Keep in mind that some fabrics have a direction, Turn it (or your head) sideways, and if it looks wrong, it has a direction. If it is a large repeating pattern, I’ll need 1/4 yard more. This will insure your pattern isn’t skewed or upside down

Fabrics with patterns: a large pattern on a small basket won’t show much of the pattern. Measure a 10x10 square of the fabric to get an idea of how much will actually show in your basket.
The opposite is that a small pattern won’t show in a big basket. Tiny polka dots in a trike basket will look one color.

I don’t see my basket in your list of baskets you have liners for!

If I don’t have your basket, I just have not been provided measurements for your basket! I need a picture, or link, measurements of the top, and bottom and the height. The base of the basket is one of the most important, and manufactures typically do not provide the measurements of the base. As long as the basket has 4 mostly equal sides, I should be able to make a liner!
