When my friend Cara emailed me a link to these adorable Pottery Barn Buckets , I knew I could make them myself. This is the Summer Printed Bucket from Pottery Barn Kids. It originally retailed for $24.99 – it’s now on sale for $9.99.

You can find almost anything on Pinterest…it’s true. Upon wasting my time searching the other day, I found a fantastic tutorial on upcycling diaper boxes. Hmmm…what could I do with this? Oh, yes – toys scattered all about our living room floor: check, a desire to get said toys put away when not in use: check, cute fabric laying there staring at me: check!
While we only just got the Wii a few months back I can see how a family can amass quite a few games. We only have 6 games currently but I figured I would rather be proactive in the storage area than reactive. So with the newest addition to our playroom (A.K.A…the Blue TV Cabinet) I decided to utilize every square inch, including the door insets.

My mom made this adorable basket by weaving strips of fabric up like a basket, and she is sharing a tutorial with you guys!
As promised , a recipe for making washable stand-up storage baskets: You'll need to cut 2 of each of these pieces (click on the pic to enlarge it to a readable size). The measurements are in centimetres because that's the way I was brought up (sorry).
These clever storage baskets are not only cute and handy, they're also a secret recycling project. The sides and bottoms of each basket are stiffened with recycled cardboard! But wait ... they have another hidden talent: they collapse and fold flat to store. In the nursery, use them for creams, diapers, wash cloths and other diaper changing accessories.
If there were ever a project that was my most favorite, it would have to be these Hanging Fabric Baskets. You can make them any size, hang on bigger thicker rods for more drama, or single baskets hung one over the other in a narrow space, really so many possibilities. It has been fun to see the different variations people have made to use in their homes too. Some of the pictures I’ve been sent include burlap for kitchens storing potatoes and onions, in classrooms to hold student’s things, dorm room storage, even a single one holding magazines by a favorite chair.

Going to a wedding soon? Or a baby shower, bridal shower maybe? This is a fun thing to make.

School's been rollin' for awhile. Lockers are filling up with paper and books and perhaps a few weeks' worth of lunch bags. It's probably time to force a little organization on the chaos with this super cute locker caddy. There's just a little bit of sewing and a whole lot of glueing. We used some very specific sizes and items, and we've linked directly to products wherever possible. But not to worry, it would be easy to revise the shapes and sizes to best fit your locker and whatever dry erase board you find.
At least twice a day I promise myself I will no longer watch or read the news, it's just too upsetting. I stopped buying the paper.... But my local dollar store recycles it and gladly gave me a bundle. So I have combined my love for baskets with my need to forget what I just read, LOL. I saw this tutorial on weaving a basket from newspaper, quickly realized I had everything I needed and jumped in with both feet. I wrote down the website and now the link seems to be no good????
