Nana and grandad agreed to buy the boy a "new" (second hand) bike for Bday and we handed the Dinosaur bike down to my little girl.
Of course the problem was that the bike was quite boyish.
I had seen this great tutorial for a bike basket at noodleheads.blogspot.com so i went to the shed and grabbed anything that would come off the bike and traced everything and replaced them.
The basket came out great using the heaviest iron-on interfacing i could find to give stiffness.
The whole makeover was a great hit and the bike is now called "My Pretty Bike". Success!!
