Not sure that this is close enough to be considered a knock-off but it definitely qualifies as inspired!

I loved this idea but not the $149 price tag.
Materials Already On-Hand:
pillow cases or other scrap fabric
(I used two king-sized cases that we no longer use)
Materials Purchased: Project Cost: $1.00
laundry basket from the dollar store
Step 1: Use seam ripper to open up the pillow cases in an L-shape. I left one long side intact.
Step 2: Sew pillow cases together on the longest side. I used the #3 stitch on my machine.
Step 3: Trim off excess fabric from bottom before hemming up the bottom.
Step 4: I used the lace as a natural hem for the top of my basket. This is also where I threaded the ribbon through to use as a drawstring. ***Remember to leave a space open to insert the drawstring. I forgot and created more work for myself. Ugh!***
Instead of measuring for the drawstring space I just followed the straight line near the edge of the lace.
Step 5: Thread the drawstring cord or ribbon through the top...or in my case, under the lace. Tie as desired.

with the cloth napkins that were literally in a pile
Step 6: Use!
This basket sits on the stair landing to the basement/laundry room. Convenient and cute. My faves!
