Talk about a quickie project....I think this one took me less than 5 minutes (if you subtract the year it took me to find the supplies)!
You've seen my bike before. I call it my "Old Lady Bike" and I mean that with lots of love for the "old ladies" out there.
I love cruising around town on it. I made a little Bike Bag for it last summer, but I always knew that what I really wanted was an actual basket.
So, I finally found the perfect basket at the second hand shop, weaved some ribbon through the side, and tied it on. That's it! So simple. What's even better is that it works on the front or the back and it only takes a minute or two to switch it.
I love the vintagey feel of the whole bike now. I suppose I could've dry brushed some paint onto it, mod podged it, or poured glitter all over it, but why mess around with it when I've got bike riding to do?
