DIY Easter basket liner

We had fair weather this weekend, yey! So I spray painted baskets outdoors.  I still have an Easter basket from childhood (the one on the left below). It had some stains and needed a little pretty-up. 
Two baskets needed two whole cans of satin spray paint, yikes. I sprayed the inside first. Took my dog for a walk and let that dry.
Then flipped and sprayed the bottoms.

I reused the bicycle basket liners I made last Spring. You can see how I made them here.

I trimmed a bit of fabric off the bottom of the gray and white stripe liner. Re-stitched the bottom closed. Then added box corners, so it fit the basket better. 
This pink and gray, girls top, size large, from Goodwill is a perfect fit for the large egg shaped basket. 
I made my this liner just like my bicycle basket liners, except I made a square bottom and added box corners.
