DIY Fabric Organizing Bin

1 Material
Organize closets, craft rooms and your desk with these easy-to-make fully collapsible storage bins.
These bins are made from a drop cloth, can be customized in 3 different sizes that make them perfect for nesting and take only basic sewing skills to complete.
They are also fully collapsible so you can flatten and stack them when not in use.
I used the lids from pizza boxes as a template but there is a downloadable template on the blog with options for 3 sizes, small, medium and large. The bin shown above is the large size.
I used a Sharpie to mark where to cut out the fabric.
I added fusible web to the back of one side (the lining) and then began stitching.
This is the completed basket and the full details, pattern, plus all steps are available on the blog.

Suggested materials:

  • Drop cloth   (Amazon)
