Hi there! Crystal here, from Stitched by Crystal! With three kids in the house I feel like I never have enough storage for all the toys, so I love sewing up fabric bins to help keep everything organized. I am also a big fan of adorable pom-pom trim. So today I am combining those two to create some really fun pom-pom trimmed fabric bins!
These pom-pom trimmed fabric bins are perfect for storing all sorts of small things to keep your space looking neat and tidy. And the pom-pom trim adds a really fun touch. I made them up in three different sizes for lots of different storage potential.
The pom-pom trimmed fabric bins are really simple to sew and don’t take a lot of fabric. They would make a great quick afternoon project and would even be great for beginners.
I am sure you can think of all sorts of things to store in these! I already have one in my craft room, one in my daughter’s room, and one in my baby’s room, but I think I may need 3 or 4 more!
They would make great gifts too. Fill one with diapers, a teddy bear, and a blanket for your next baby shower, or how about school supplies for your kid’s teacher in the fall!
Want to make some pom-pom trimmed fabric bins? Great! Let me show you how…
You will need…
- 1/2 yard of your main and lining fabric for each bin
- 1 yard of medium to heavy iron on interfacing (2 yards for a sturdier bin) for each bin
- 1 yard of pom pom trim for each bin
- Basic sewing supplies
Fabric cutting chart
**All seam allowances are 1/2″**
Choose which size bin you want to make and cut your fabric for your bin according to “Fabric Bins” column in the table above. Then use the measurements “Bottom Corner Measurements” column for your size to cut out squares from both bottom corners on all of your fabric bin pieces.
Fuse your interfacing to the back of your lining pieces (for a sturdier bin, you can also fuse interfacing to the back of your main bin pieces). Then with your fabrics right sides together, Sew along the sides and bottom of your main bin pieces leaving the bottom corners and the top unsewn. Repeat with your lining pieces.
Press your seams open. Pull the bottom corner apart so that the side seam and bottom seam line up, pin then sew along the bottom corner. Repeat for all your main and lining bottom corners.
Line up your pom pom trim with the top of your main bin and baste it in place.
With your main bin right side out and your lining wrong side out, place the main bin inside the lining bin.
Line up the top edges of the two bins, making sure the side seams are aligned and sew around the top edge, leaving a 3″-4″ opening to turn the bins.
Turn the bin right side out through the hole you left. Push the lining down inside the main bin, press the top of the bins, then top stitch around the top, making sure you close the opening.
Fold the top of the bin down about 2″ and iron. Your pom pom trimmed bin is done!
Thanks for reading and happy sewing!
