No Stitch Basket Liners

laundry14

I got these bushel baskets for $2 a piece at a Pottery Barn Kids “going out of business” sale.  Of all places!  When I eyed them in the store, I knew instantly they would be the perfect addition to my laundry room.  Hung up, they provide a practical solution for dirty laundry.  It’s so nice not having to walk or trip over a basket on the floor. 
I decided to line them with burlap.  At first I was going to let the burlap hang over the sides, and tie rope around to secure it.  But then I saw this jute ribbon at the fabric store, and knew it would work even better.  I love how the orangey red stripe coordinates with the orangey red apron hanging in the room.

You’ll see here just how easy this project was.  I stuck the burlap in the basket, and cut around the top edge.

Then I hot glue gunned the burlap to the basket rim.  Then did the same with the jute ribbon on top.

I glued the inside and outside edges of the ribbon last.

Super easy, no stitches required.

  3. What a beautiful room. I love anything that makes everyday chores a beautiful task. Thanks for sharing the basket liner idea. As I don't sew yet, this is right up my alley and I LOVE the space saving use of getting them off the floor and onto the wall!
    Have a lovely weekend Rie,

  14. I know your no-sew baskets are terrifically cute and yout no-sew tagline is meant to appeal to women who are afraid to sew, but I wanted tto encourage ladies to learn. It is really not so hard and opens up all sorts of creative projects! I own, use, and love my glue gun but sturdy fabric projects that are sewn and machine washable are worth their weight in gold when you have small children. I know, I am expecting number ten in three months. -Melissa

  15. Hi Rie - love the baskets, great idea. I have a question, I really like the wire hanger you have from PB but I can't seem to find it on their site - where should I be looking?

  20. Barb-
    It was called the Wire Utility Hanger. I just went and looked on their site, and it's not there. I wonder if they sold out. I know when I ordered mine, it was backordered. Perhaps when they stock up again, they'll list it? Here's hoping!

  22. Love your new look laundry - I am thinking about redoing my laundry but need to get a solar hot water system installed first so I can get rid of the old one that takes up a chunk of space in my little laundry.
    I love my hot glue gun- it is one of my favourite tools!

  23. Just want to comment that Hobby Lobby has some bushel baskets for $4.99 but use one of their 40% off coupons and get them for $3.00.

  24. I was wondering if you could tell me how you hung them to the wall? I see there is wire, but what tools should I use? Thank you - Kathryn

  26. When my 7 children were growing up I did lots of laundry so I still have my baskets I lined 40 years ago, and still use. Each is a different color for the different colored clothes. The children each put their clothes in the correponding baskets so when they needed a "red" shirt for Friday game day! No looking for one!
