I had to make a new liner for my weekend shopping cart as the old one I made out of a vintage quilt was getting pretty ratty. I made this liner months and months ago--- and even though I got oo000ooohhhssss & aaAAaaahhhssss over it, I wasn't finished with it!
It was needing something to hang over the wire bars at the top, as is, its sooooooo "swap meet." I intended to add a piece of a lace valance, but I had so much fun making the ruffled piece for my vintage laundry basket, that I whipped up a topper for my shopping cart as well. Plus, I have a huge bag of ruffles I premade just waiting to be used. It was pretty easy to stitch the ruffles to the liner and flip it over the edge and taaa daaa....
finished & caute!
I also reattached my "Artsy Fartsy" sign to my cart. It fell off last summer and had been in the trunk of my car ever since *wink* I just love ruffles! I remember having a pair of ruffled "party
pants" when I was about five years old... I lifted my dress to show
everyone at a party my ruffles... and then being swatted on my ruffled
butt for doing so...... *sigh*
To this day, that swat makes no sense at
all.... Party/party pants? Hello--- just showing my enthusiasm for partying!
