This was such a quick and easy project. I loved the Fabric Bin Tutorial on Birch Fabrics. If I'd have had all the supplies I needed (oops) and more focused time, I could have easily finished the project in a day.
I feel like it's a little risky to post about a gift before giving the gift, but yeah. I guess I'm just too excited to have a finished project to share.
I have a friend with a nearly 2-year-old who happens to love Charley Harper art. In fact, she used some of Harper's art in decorating her son's room. I wasn't familiar with Charley Harper until she educated me two years ago, so naturally, I think of her whenever I see the Charley Harper fabrics. When I saw the fabric bin tutorial I thought voila! Charley Harper Fabric Bins!!
Like I said, they went together pretty easily. I had a bit of trouble smoothly adhering the Pellon to the fabric which made me thankful it was attached to the inner fabric. ;-) And the fabric/Pellon really got wrinkled up when turning it after sewing the inner and outer fabrics together. When I ironed the folded over top edge I also steamed the sides a bit and I was very happy with the finished look.
Here are some pictures of the finished bins. I can just imagine them filled up with blocks and matchbox cars and trains.
