I hear my Mom singing that song whenever I look at a bushel basket. It was a household item back in the day...before the plastic age. I remember seeing clothes rolled and sprinkled, ready for ironing in a bushel basket just like this.
My dear SIL Elizabeth asked if I wanted this basket, I said yes and I had in mind a project.
Finding myself with an unexpected day off from baby wrangling, I got a little crafty.
I had this pillowcase from one of my rummage sales. I thought I might try my hand at lining the basket. The pillowcase wasn't wide enough to go around the basket, so I cut off the embroidered part and added a piece off the bottom of the case to give me the width I needed.
Urban Farmgirl. The fabric is beautiful, 100% cotton and reasonably priced. A pair of curtains is about twenty dollars for about 6 yards of 54 in wide fabric. A bargain!!
