Collapsible Storage Bins DIY + Sewing Machine Basics

from Amy of Peek-a-boo Patterns + Liesl Gibson


A quick DIY by Amy of Peek-a-boo Patterns showing us how she created these handy collapsible storage bins using cardboard and vinyl.  These bins are 18″ x 12″ x 8″ and fit perfectly under Amy’s nursery changing table.

To make two household storage bins you will need:

  1. 1 1/8 yard durable outer fabric – Amy used marine vinyl.  Cotton duck or canvas would be fine.

  2. 2 1/4 yards lining fabric.

  3. Cardboard or sheets of plastic canvas to reinforce the sides of the bins.

  4. Hot glue.
