tv tray cart turned laundry cart / basketJanuary 18th, 2010 in member junk
remember those rolling carts with the metal tube framework that held the family tv trays back in the 60s and 70s? my mom got hers with her s&h green stamps.. i had one and decided to make a laundry basket out of it .. i used some vintage fabrics that i had and put a snap in the middle on the flap to help hold it in place .. i made my own pattern by lying the cart on its side on newpaper and drawing around the edges to create the V pattern sides ... then i measured around the V and how wide i needed the fabric and sewed it up .. i had to make some adjustments by handwork .. but i am very pleased with the way it turned out ..i have a bunch of tv trays without wheels which i may make some of these for .. sorry i forgot to take before pictures .. i would take some now, but my camera is at home and i am at the warehouse working ..
