Fabric bins

I've had this tutorial from Birch Fabrics on my "to do" list for a while now, and I decided that my mother-in-law's birthday was the perfect opportunity to try it out. Leslie is an artist, and I figured those of us who make things always need ways to store our supplies. I think they came out pretty well, although they don't look much like the original! IMG_3665

They're super easy to make; you cut out two of each template in both your outside and lining fabrics (there's also an option to make it in a continuous piece). For my outside lining I used some teal cotton broadcloth, and for the lining I used some of my precious stash of Stella Dot.


In between the lining and the outside, there's some decor weight interfacing. I've only ever used apparel interfacing, so I was a little skeptical about how well they would actually stand up, but I was pleasantly surprised by how sturdy they turned out. Then you just sew some seams and turn down the tops, and you're done!


They even stack well, in case you need to store them to save some space.


This was a great project; I highly recommend it and will be making some more for me!
