Fabric Storage Boxes (per your request

Fabric Storage Boxes (per your request
Okay, the fabric storage box tutorial is here. (Sorry for the little tease last friday and no actual tutorial. We were trying to get on the road for our trip to ID… things got crazy last week. But we’re here. And safe. And enjoying Idaho. I’m guessing there are probably 100 different ways to make fabric boxes though. (And last year, I even made storage boxes out of cardboard here, if interested.) So for today’s fabric boxes, I kept things moderately simple……and not too costly. Anyway, maybe some of you have made fabric storage boxes before……..but here’s my version. (And yeah, I’ll be making a few more. The boxes have side handles…….and a front window to slide in a content label. So what kind of stuff do you need organized? But what’s keeping those bins nice and upright? So make some for the kids room, for your craft room, for the storage shelves in your den, up in that one empty spot on the book shelf……..or even to throw in the car between the bucket seats. See? And that’s it.

diy sewing machine pin cushion tutorial so i saw this sewing machine pin cushion on pinterest and it looked like a really cute, easy project and i've been meaning to start a 'printerest projects i've completed' board so i decided to make one (even though i avoid using pins at all costs...). so here's my inspiration: i followed the same basic idea as this tutorial but i did make some changes-i used an elastic band instead of ribbon (because, for whatever reason, when i tie ribbon it never stays the way i tied it) and i boxed the corners of the front piece to make it sit more flat against my machine (rather than a small pillow tied to it). supplies: -fabric -elastic ( used 1" but you could go a bit narrower) -batting/stuffing -interfacing (optional) to make the casing for the elastic, sew the 2 long strips together with the right sides facing in. i sewed roughly 1 1/4" apart just to make sure i could fit the elastic in there. flip inside out and press. it helps to place a safety pin on one end and work it back through.

IHeart Organizing: Project Pretty: DIY Fabric Boxes & a Link Party! Last week I got the itch. Not a rash. An itch to do something. To DIY. Craft Room, Part 4 Need a few more ideas to help out your crafting space? Better head to some yard sales. They’re becoming plentiful her in GA….the weather is perfect for them. sewing 101: fabric boxes It seems no matter what I do, I can never get a handle on all the tiny odds and ends that accumulate around my house. From craft materials to hair ties, the bits and bobs are constantly trying to take over, so in the never-ending quest to corral them, these little fabric bins were born. You can make one of these soft boxes in almost no time, and in almost any size, so you can customize them to perfectly fit whatever you need to hold.

Nalle's House: DIY FABRIC DRAWER LINERS The decorating of the pilots' shared room has officially begun. Can we say, "finally!!!". I only blogged about wanting to tackle their room several months ago and have just now started (without any real plan, by the way). Over the past few days/week I have been refinishing a dresser for them, but I'm just going to show you the drawers today. I guess I'm going about this dresser reveal from the inside out. :)

Repurpose Denim: Sew Do-it-All Bins By Betz White Repurposing with denim is a natural. Who doesn’t have an extra pair of jeans lying around that are outgrown, out of fashion or worn out in some way? Put that denim to good use by making up a few Denim Do-it-All Bins. They’re great for organizing your yarn stash, magazines, or craft supplies. Materials Craft Room, Part 3 (dry erase picture frame) Do you remember this old post? (Sorry, not the best color, not the best picture…..and not my favorite framed dry erase board. But it worked.) Christine Chitnis This might be my favorite craft so far, and I got the idea after seeing one too many beautifully patterned pots that were just out of my price range! Nothing a little Mod Podge and pretty fabric can’t fix! The total cost of this project was about $3 a pot. Materials:Terracotta potsMod PodgeBrushFabric This works better in description form, rather than step-by-step: Start by cutting a length of fabric that will wrap once around your pot. Leave extra room for folding it over on the top and bottom.
