Storage Cubes Done Cheap!

Aren't these too cute?


You'll need:
•5 squares of fabric for the outside of the cube--I used brown & Blue decorator's fabric


•5 squares of fabric for the inside of the cube--I used brown felt


•Interfacing to reinforce the outer fabric-optional


•Ribbon for handles--about 7-8 inches


•Supplies--scissors, rotary cutter, mat, ruler, sewing machine, thread, pins


Start by sewing the 4 sides together in a row. Next attach the bottom to each side of the cube. Then finish the cube by closing the side (brown dot to giraffe) of the cube. Attach interfacing if using. (I only did 2 sides.) Attach the handles.



Repeat the process for the interior fabric. I used brown felt for the lining for its stiffness.



 
Sew the interior and exterior fabrics together, right sides together. Attach on three and a half sides, leaving an opening to turn. Turn the cube right side out, press and top stitch.




This tutorial came from one of the members of the susie homemaker group. All the information and pictures belong to her. I had to share her idea...her screename is

SanDiegoMaxMom. Glad I could share this with you all, since it's a great way to use scraps of fabric into something useful.
