My baby eats thread. Let me explain.
My little guy is always slithering around the house while doing his army crawl and snatches up debris wherever he can. And sadly, he swallows thread. Yup, thread from all of my projects. I am constantly checking his mouth but sometimes the little stinker sneaks little treasures in his fists and eats it later. Or just finds stuff in the most random places. (sigh)
Bad mom…….because someone told me how dangerous it is for babies to swallow thread. (Thanks for the info Christy!!) Supposedly it can get caught in their intestines and such and cut or tear all of that sensitive tissue they have inside of there. So after pulling thread out of his bum during a diaper change (I know, gross)……I committed to be more careful.
After I clip anything off, it goes right into the pail.
And really, you could use this technique to line anything. A laundry basket, a fruit basket, etc.
How I did it??
Sew the main section together at the sides (1/4 inch seam) and then pin the bottom on, with right sides together. It’s okay if it doesn’t line up exactly right. If your main section is bigger at the bottom than your circle, just gather it a bit and sew the bottom on (1/4 inch seam). (Well, it can’t be that much bigger……it just doesn’t have to be perfect.) It’ll turn out just fine. Remember, it’s just a pail.
Safe from my buddy’s mouth……… (sigh)
