You are going to need to get some cardboard boxes to fit your space. I made these ones to fit into my coffee console table. I couldn't find boxes that fit the space perfectly so I ended up adjusting them a bit. The details on how I did it but kept the boxes sturdy is in my blog post.

Now you need to cut 2 pieces of fabric for the sides and 1 piece for the font/bottom/back. I made the boxes look really nice by adding stitching to the front piece.

Now using some spray glue, you will attach the fabric to the box. Start with the sides. You will have to trim the bottom corners to get them to lay flat.

Finish it up with the front/bottom/back piece. Then I added handles with a permanent glue and some grommets.

And to really make them look professional, finish off the inside with a little ribbon to cover your unfinished edges. Beautiful!

Now you just need to fill them up! They can hold so much and they look amazing. I am ready to make some more and finish organizing my whole house.
