Remember me mentioning the great score I made at the flea ~ this vintage shopping cart for $10?
Well, I thought she looked a little naked so I dressed her up a bit with a liner made from a vintage, twin-sized bed sheet.
Because I couldn't find a tutorial online, I've put one together here in case you'd like to make one...
1. Measure your cart ~ the front and back, sides and bottom and cut your fabric, adding a 1/2" for seams.
2. Cut another piece of your fabric for a pocket (to hold your wallet, keys and phone), pin and sew to what will be the back inside of your liner:
3. With right sides together, pin the front and back panels and the side panels to the bottom panel and sew.
4. Match up the four sides, pin and stitch together.
5. Repeat steps 1-4 again for your liner (you can use a different fabric but I chose to use the same for both).
6. With right sides together, insert your one liner into the other and place them both into your cart, folding over the tops a bit to prevent them from falling down into your cart.
7. Cut and sew six ties, 2"x24" and fold them in half, open ends facing down.
8. Place your ties between the two liners, pin in place and sew along the top and leaving a 3" opening.
9. Turn your liners right side out, stitch closed your 3" opening, place back into your cart and tie your bows.
10. Step back and admire your work. Easy and pretty fast.
Hmmmmm. Needs a little something ~ lace, pom poms?
Yep, pom poms!
A simple face lift for this vintage beauty!
I've already taken her for a spin!
