Well, it was time. Time for a new bike basket. Because three years after my first bike basket(s), my younger kid is now riding a bike!
Here's where scrap packs from Hawthorne Threads came in very handy. I used three from a "Fresh" pack, and used fabric I otherwise might not ever have cut into. Although... those Trees in cream are pretty awesome. I'm a sucker for tree fabrics.
My original notes on the pattern are still relatively true. The curved bucket bottom is a little big compared to the rectangular peices, which made for some puckering at the bottom of the bucket. It's not perfect. (Is anything, ever?). But it's totally functional and now I KNOW it will hold up well, because the one I made for Lili is still going strong (and has been transferred to her THIRD bike!).
It took me less than 2 hours to make this time. My sewing skilz have way improved since the last time (three years ago! OMG!).
