Organizing Fun...

The kids needed a solution to storage(alright-I needed a solution for the kids stuff). I have been taken with all the lovely fabric bins that so many are creating out there, so I decided to come up with some of my own. I love that the possibilities are endless when it come to fabric choices and designs! The construction is so simple and storage becomes eye candy. Here are the bins I was able to put together for the younger 4.

Madison is using hers to store her school books in. I used a combination of some more modern quilting fabrics with vintage bed linens.

Bell keeps all of her drawing supplies in hers and it sits on her bed.Bell's was similar to Madi's in that is was new mixed with vintage fabrics.

Joslyn's has become a catch all for the things she doesn't want to put away and we are working on that;). Joslyn's was made completely of reclaimed bed linens.

I have been using Noah's for his laundry. I used fabric that was taken from a crib duvet for Noah's, it had such a fun and playful animal design.

All of them were strengthened with a very stiff sew in stabilizer which gave them their shape. The handles make them awesome for carrying from place to place.
