7. Vintage-inspired bike basket
Not satisfied with boring bike baskets? Create a convenient carry-all that reflects your unique style and personality, like this adorable vintage-inspired basket dreamed up by stay-at-home mom and A Lemon Squeezy Home blogger Christie Hurst.
To try it at home, simply select the vintage-style fabric of your choice, browse Hurst’s detailed photo tutorial and give that sewing machine a workout to create your hip new bike basket.
The frilly nature of this basket may make it look like it’s for women only. But all you bike-friendly guys out there can easily replace the fru-fru fabric with a simple patterned or solid-colored pick that suits your style.
And if you’re in search of a tricked-out basket for the kids, check out Hurst’s tutorial for a fabric basket that’s perfect for a child’s bike. The creative mama used a printed firetruck fabric to craft a basket for her young son’s birthday, but feel free to shop around for the look that best appeals to your little one. For green brownie points, use upcycled fabric from old clothes or scraps left over for previous craft projects.
