I have a confession: I am a piler. In every room of my house, there is at least one pile of junk that I don't I don't feel like dealing with. My craft room sometimes has so many piles that you can not even see the floor. This was fine for the old craft room, but now that it's getting it's make-over I need somewhere pretty to put all my piles. I was inspired by this at Positively Splendid. I used an assortment of different size boxes. I also wrapped my boxes a little differently.
First: I centered the box on my fabric, making sure the fabric was large enough to cover all 4 sides.
Second: I cut from the corner of the fabric to the corner of the boxes.
Third (I forgot to take a picture), I folded the points to the middle and brought the sides of the fabric up. I used hot glue to secure in place.
I based my liners on this tutorial here from Make it and Love it. Although I may not be very smart, and couldn't figure it out at first. I'm adding a few pics that may help you.
Step one: cut out a piece for your main piece and for the two ends.
Step two: Sew the ends to the main piece/
Step three: Sew up the sides (sew A to side A, B to side B etc.)
Step 4: Make a narrow hem.
Step 5: Put liner on bin.
Step 6: Attach a tag (tutorial here)
Step 7: Admire your work
I steal have lots of piles-they are just hiding in pretty bins.
