Hamper Remake

Hamper remake

Margo had an old hamper (circa 1958) and she hated it.  I have to admit, it is bordering on ugly.  So here's what we did.

We used pink flowered fabric and using the basic ironing-board covering technique I learned about 35 years ago, we covered the top and padded it with batting.   Then we made a skirt out of the coordinating stripe.  My daughter learned how to thread elastic through a casing, how to measure and draft patterns, wind a bobbin, press a hem up, and sew a casing.  Not a bad day's work!
