Fabric Gift Boxes
I have quilty best friends coming over this weekend, and I thought I might need to make each of them a little fabric gift basket. (That isn’t crazy, right?!)
After searching ye ole pinterest, I found this great tutorial by Birch Fabrics. The tutorial offers multiple sizes and is very easy to follow. I chose the size that would best fit on a Fat Quarter (18″ x 22″ piece of fabric). I made the two bins in an afternoon, so really, there’s plenty of time if you are thinking Fabric Bins for Easter.
The construction was a little different than what I usually do. Like in the Insulated Grocery Tote, I generally make a big rectangle and create triangles at the lower edge of the shape to create a boxed corner.

The fabric bin tutorial eliminates this step by providing “notched” out rectangles in the pattern.
On the upside, my bins are really really stiff from the Peltex and seem to be quite sturdy.
Now, I need to fill these little guys up with goodies!
