Handy little fabric bin


So….if you haven’t heard already, my sister had a project published in the current issue of Quilting Arts Gifts.  I finally made not one, but two!  I was visiting my mother last weekend and made both of these.

I was very surprised at my mother’s fabric choices–hers is on the right.

The little pockets on the front will hole a fat-handled seam ripper (upside down), a marking pencil, a stiletto and a small pair of scissors.  I’ll use the bin section for threads and scraps to be thrown away.  This will be very convenient for classes, as it also collapses.  It was very easy and inexpensive to make.  The only thing I did differently was to use plastic canvas for the rigid sides instead of cutting up old VHS cases.  I am looking forward to using mine next weekend at our local guild’s sew day.

  1. Curious…what’s plastic canvas? Also, would like to have the directions to make…maybe at next quilt guild meeting? Thanks.
