Fabric storage bins are a useful storage solution and are especially cute when made using fabrics that coordinate with your nursery décor.
Baby Room Storage Ideas: Fabric Storage Bins
1. For the larger bin, cut two pieces of contrasting print 30" x 15". One print will be the outer fabric and one print will be the lining fabric. For the smaller bin, cut two pieces of fabric measuring 24" x 12". Using the Rotary Ruler tool makes this cutting so easy because the blade is attached right to the ruler. This feature leads to more accurate cutting, especially when cutting multiple layers.
2. Sew the short ends of the outer fabric together with right sides facing each other. Repeat for the lining fabric.
3. For the larger bin, cut a 3" square from the two bottom corners of the sewing fabric, using the Amplify Fabric Shears. Repeat for the lining fabric. For the smaller bin, cut a 2 1/2" square from the bottom corner.
4. Open up the fabric and sew the holes closed, matching the side seam with the seam along the bottom.
5. Turn the lining fabric inside out and turn the outer fabric right sides out. Place the outer fabric inside the lining, so that the right side of the lining is facing the right side of the outer fabric. Pin the two fabrics together around the top edge. Leave a 5" hole in one edge and sew the two fabric pieces together.
6. Turn the fabrics to the right side through the hole in the seam.
7. Fill out the corners. Pin the hole closed and top stitch around the entire perimeter of the bins to finish.
Storage solutions are plentiful and these little bins are so versatile and lightweight and can be made in any size and color. These liners can also be used as containers for gifts, or little bins for the car or bathroom counter.
