I decided to try and make a lining for it using a thrifted sheet I purchased for 99 cents at Goodwill. I am pretty impressed with how well the lining fit over the top of the basket. I cut off the side hems of the sheet to use for the ties.
I put some pleats in the bottom corners to taper the lining. The inside is a little baggy, but it still looks pretty good.
The basket in action--full of toys.
