It is so easy to DIY a beautiful storage box or bin. Cover it with fabric and then embellish with fussy cut appliques. You can use a collapsible storage bin or an ordinary box to beautify your home, or to make a lovely gift box. Adding leather handles is a beautiful option as well. Let me show you how.
Measure all four sides with a 3″ drop to the inside.
If using a 10.5″ storage bin like the one used in the video, you will need two pieces of fabric that are 16″ wide and 38″ long.
To cover the storage bin, prepare the fabric pieces by folding and finger pressing 3″ in along the side of the fabric.
If using plaid fabric watch the video for tips on how to cut the fabric.
Place the bin in the very center of the fabric.
If using a plaid or one way fabric, pay close attention to the placement of the bin, so that the print on the fabric will match up the side. The video will help explain this step.
Pull the fabric up the sides of the storage cube, folding the extra 3 inches to the inside and use clothespins to hold the fabric in place.
