I recently bought a vintage Raleigh Sprite. I have wanted a cruiser ever since visiting Amersterdam. I wanted a bike with a basket that I could also travel with my Chihuahua. He seems to enjoy the ride. I made a lining and seat cover that can be removed. The basket lining is also a bag that I can take with me. It folds down and up with a lid. This makes it easy to fill up and stuff won’t fly out while biking. I also covered a cushion that I already had for my dog. This can be removed.
The pattern fabric came from my stash and the brown is from a curtain that I no longer use.
I have more photos on my blog:
