Okay by now you should all know about my sick love of the dollar store basket. I mean really what’s not to love! Imagine my surprise when I came across this post over at Fox Downs. Avlor has taken the dollar store basket to the next level and made, are you ready for this, a fabric basket insert! A fabric insert to keep the small items from falling to the bottom, something that had been bothering Avlor so she decided to do something about it. Oh yes she did. Oh my word, talk about clever and resourceful! I love clever people, especially ones that show kindness to the dollar store basket. It’s a beautiful thing. See for yourself.
It’s fun, it’s functional, it solved a problem and it didn’t cost a lot of money. It does take a little bit of craftiness though which means my basket liner dreams may never come true but as long as I have that beautiful picture to comfort me I think I’ll be A okay.
More information and instructions are here. Enjoy your Storage Star Avlor, you deserve it!
To see another example of basket beautifying at it’s finest you must also hop on over to Make and Takes to see what a little ribbon can do. Now that is what I call fannnnncy!
Updated: Reader Jessica just sent me this FABULOUS link to another great basket liner idea. WOW, love the fabric!!
