Undressed Moses Basket – A basket of Moses is an oval straw or cane woven basket that is used to keep newborns or infants up to a few months. It is named after Old Testament history in which baby Moses was placed in a basket and floated along the Nile River to save him from Pharaoh.
The liner for a basket of Moses usually consists of soft padding or quilted burlap with a top of the lining has links on the side to attach to the sides of the basket. You can make a moss undressed moses basket liner without sewing. Instructions: Choose a large basket that is sturdy enough to support baby’s weight and bedding. Make sure the basket is almost 50 percent longer and wider than the baby, so you have room to kick your legs and move your arms. Place the cushioned material on a large table or on the floor.
Place the undressed moses basket in the middle of the fabric, right side up. Draw a line around the base of the basket with a crayon. Lift the fabric around the outside of the basket to the upper edge of its faces. Keep the material here to mark with a wax pencil to determine how much is needed. Continue to mark the fabric along the edges of the top of the basket.
