I got around to finishing the fabric basket today and it is bigger than I thought.
It is 20 inches or 50cm in diameter.It is pretty big and as I suspected it does not stand up on its own despite all the pieces of plastic milk bottle I used. It has lots and lots but they are all short so this is why it won't stand up. It doesn't need to anyway as once it is full it stays upright.
These are what I used to stiffen it.
This was girls dress ups before...
and girls dress ups after
Boys dress ups before....
Now I have a spare drawer!
I think it turned out ok but I will make a smaller one next time.
