I hope you still have the bassinet cover that was used before. When I wanted to provide a wash'n'wear cover and skirts for my husband's family bassinet which my sister was going to use, I opened up large plastic bags and taped them together for pieces large enough. Then I pinned then to the bassinet lining and created pattern pieces. I recall that the head and foot of the bassinet were slightly different, the head being a little higher so that I made separate pattern pieces for the ends (maybe 8 to 10 inches for the foot and 12-14 inches for the head) and then there were the side pieces. It really depends on the shape of the bassinet. The skirt was much easier to deal with ~ determine length and how full I wanted it, gather, attach and hem somewhere in the process. Time consuming so you need to start ASAP.

Our bassinet held DH's mother and her 2 sisters, and is being readied for a spring baby by my husband's younger son. DH's sister and I were trying to track the number of babies who have used the family bassinet and it is well into the 50s if not 60s throughout the family and counting extended families such as my sister or my SIL's inlaws. It is a wonderful thing and we have decided now is the time to formally document the babies of the bassinet...

Best wishes!

ETA: the pattern pieces for the foot and head of the bassinet lining for the side walls of the bassinet had sort of a wedge or pie shape but without having to a point if that makes any sense.

Thank you for your story and input, I will take all of this into consideration. And wow!! That bassinet must have been made of steel because all the ones I have ever seen seemed like stapled cardboard! Lol

It was a struggle at first learning how to post pictures but after a while it becomes second nature.
After 4 years I have not learned out to link to pictures from within the post.
