I love new sewing room ideas. One of them is fabric baskets and bins. There are a few things that you can never really make enough of– fabric bins or baskets is one of them. I have them holding fabric, scraps, sewing projects, pencils, little bits….you name it, it can store it.
While being organized is a big plus, the other benefit is the cuteness! Finding a way to show off fabric, designs, patterns….is always fun. These can brighten a room, shelf, and yet be useful as well.
A few ways to use the fabric baskets are
Organizing your fabric – You can not only use your fabric scraps to make the baskets, but you can use them to store the fabric as well! How cute would a bunch of them look on a shelf lined up together?
Hide away toys – Do your kids have a bunch of toys that are often spread out all over their room or toy room? Use one of these bins to collect all the little pieces/parts into one cute basket
Easter baskets – You can sew up a basket to hold all of the Easter eggs, candy and goodies brought by the Easter Bunny!
Gift Bag – Who wouldn’t love getting a darling gift delivered in a hand made basket.
Organize books & magazines – These baskets would be a great way to organize your books and magazines. It would keep them from falling over and you can also organize them into different categories in each basket.

What do you stuff in your fabric basket?
I love fabric baskets.. I have tons of scrap material I have to find a use for (to get new fabric) so plan on making a few this spring/summer for gifts the next holiday season. Need to start now or never will get them done.
I can’t locate the woven fabric basket tutorial. Any suggestions? The link tied to the image says “Error 404 Not Found”
Thanks Colleen for the heads up. The link has been updated!
Great basket ideas. I just made one similar to those shown and want to make some more,
but different. These will fill that need. Thanks.

I am wondering if the scrap basket comes in a book
Mary- I don’t believe so– might be a pattern you can download though.

Maria Regina,I love baskets, here in Brazil we made It a Lot.Thank You,they are so beautiful!!!!
I am making the fabric storage bucket and was wondering if I could use soft and stable, if so is there anything I need to be aware of when piecing together? Can I also use a triangle edge,do I need to add more length to accommodate the triangles? Thank you for your time.
