Materials List

  • Assorted cotton prints
  • Pins
  • Sewing machine and thread
  • Cutting Mat (24" x 36")
  • Rotary Cutter and Ruler Combo (12" x 12")
  • Amplify® RazorEdge™ Fabric Shears (8")

Instructions

  1. For the larger bin, cut two pieces of contrasting print 30” x 15”. One print will be the outer fabric and one print will be the lining fabric. For the smaller bin, cut two pieces of fabric measuring 24” x 12”. Using the Rotary Ruler tool makes this cutting so easy because the blade is attached right to the ruler. This feature leads to more accurate cutting, especially when cutting multiple layers.

  2. Sew the short ends of the outer fabric together with right sides facing each other. Repeat for the lining fabric.

  3. For the larger bin, cut a 3” square from the two bottom corners of the sewing fabric, using the Amplify Fabric Shears. Repeat for the lining fabric. For the smaller bin, cut a 2 1/2” square from the bottom corner.

  4. Open up the fabric and sew the holes closed, matching the side seam with the seam along the bottom.

  5. Turn the lining fabric inside out and turn the outer fabric right sides out. Place the outer fabric inside the lining, so that the right side of the lining is facing the right side of the outer fabric. Pin the two fabrics together around the top edge. Leave a 5” hole in one edge and sew the two fabric pieces together.

  6. Turn the fabrics to the right side through the hole in the seam.

  7. Turn the fabrics to the right side through the hole in the seam.

These storage containers are amazing! I do not sew, but I am sure once I start telling people about the baby I can get someone to make these for me. I love DIY things like this because they add a personal touch to your babys room, especially if they are given from a friend! I think it is important to keep lotion and diaper cream and baby powder by the changing table, just in case!
