Hamper Lining

This palm leaf-rattan hamper is one of the numerous things we bought in Baguio, and I intended it for our dirty clothes, but the entwined dried palm leaves are not suitable for clothes because they snag fabrics. So I decided to make a lining.
I initially thought of making it in full canvass, but the inner girlie-girl in me insisted I put in floral trims. Good thing I'm a hoarder because searching a bit deeper in my stash of fabrics yielded me my long-forgotten floral fabric I intended to use to reupholster our dining chairs. Anyhoo, this is a fairly straightforward measure-cut-sew job, so I won't post the instruction anymore. But if you do need it, you know where to find me, right? So there, I added a few ribbons to secure the lining and a floral lining on top for good measure.

As usual, my Sharkteeth wants to be included in the picture, so please bear with my daughter's camwhoring.


  1. Wow, I love that hamper, how much does that cost? Ang ganda...I might want to buy one like that when I visit Luzon. I will also be needing instructions then for the lining.

  2. Thanks, Sheng. It's 200 pesos. I heard there are very good ones (all rattan) in Bicol.


I'd love to hear from you, good or bad. And remember, if you can dish it, you better be able to take it!
