Default Fern in my bike basket

Ok...I had to try this as well on my bike with my carrier like qtchi has done,and it works as well with the woven bike baskets. It secures around the top with the shoulder strap nice and snug. I think Fern would fall asleep asap, but think the fur is to warm when we bike ride since i only ride in the warm weather, but a great idea. qtchi......thanks for the idea, might come in handy if i am ever brave enough to bring the girls on my bike rides Ok..here are a few pics. Back to making my pasta for my fettucine alfredo for tonights dinner



Ok...I think I'm ready for my nappy now!


Nighty night Don't bother me!

You are so creative, Lori! You make the coolest most awesome things! I wish I had your talent! That is just fabulous! I bet it's very nice and warm! And OMG girl, where did your "baby" go??? Fern has really grown! She is a big girl now! Still such a pretty girl too! I adore her coloring!

Thanks T Oh..I know it. Fern is all grow'd up now isn't she! She is tipping the charts at a full 3 lbs exactly. Isn't it weird..Ivy and Fern are exactly the SAME weight. I wanted one close to her size, but i didn't think it would work out that close. Got lucky with her. She's my little fire cracker. Her personality just floors me everyday. Isn't it amazing how different each and every one is. She is my unruly child lol!!! She pushes her limits all of the time but is still a good girl, just likes to test me

Wow. Gorgeous bike and the carrier looks like a million bucks in your wicker basket. Of course Fern is gorgeous too.

My carrier wouldn't work in that type of bike basket unless the bottom pillow was removed, but then it couldn't be removed from the wicker basket and used as a carrier if I wanted to pop into a store. The bottom would sag way too much on mine without the pillow.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks..... My pillows are sandwiched between to two layers with my bucket style. Now my other 2 carrier styles I make have removable cushions like yours. I just wanted the fur lining completly inside and sure didn't want to sew with anymore fur than I had to, that stuff goes everywhere lol!!! Did you use a stiffener in the pillow or the base of the carrier. It works great to use it in the base of the carrier. I have this really firm interfacing type fabric that is plyable but firm and about 1/8" thick, or a tad thinner. Oh... Thanks about the bike,
we LOVE our electra cruisers. All of us have one but my middle daughter Peyton. We're waiting for her to graduate to a bigger bike. I already know which one I want to get her Here is a pic. Isn't it pretty.

I don't use any stiffener or interfacing in mine. I think I will use some next time. My mind is already reworking one of my original ideas on the lining and how to attach it to the main fabric just to accomplish a function that may or may not work outside of my brain. I'll have to try that out on the next carrier I make since I don't want to take apart my original anymore than I have. I didn't have time to go to the store today after all to get the hardware for the shade/closure thing that I wanted to try out.

Originally I had a different top part to the carrier, but I didn't like the way it was for some reason so I had to take the carrier apart a little and sew a completely new style lining and top part in the carrier while it was already mostly assembled. Not pleasant, but I only did it because I didn't want to take it all apart. I probably didn't save any time in the end.

That "fur" does get everywhere. I'm making another carrier without fur to see what it will look like and how it will function. I am making a very scaled down and sporty type of carrier for days that I don't want the bulk, bling, fur, and satin.

That Electra for your daughter is beautiful. Both of my kids need new bikes. They grow fast.
