SYTYC Craft: Vintage linen storage bins

Did you guess this was my submission for week #2 of SYTYC??

No one wants their overnight guests to struggle looking for essentials in the bathroom.  These fabric storage bins not only keep everything in plain sight and within arm's reach, they're as pretty as they are functional. 


Made from vintage linens and lined in cheery gingham, they're lovely to look at, unlike their plastic counterparts.


And once your guests have returned home, they're perfect to use for your own bathrooom belongings.

  7. I sure love these. I am still struggling with sewing anything in bag form. I would love any tips. I CAN sew, it is just that everytime I try a bag type thing I get all flustered, throw a tiny fit and then give up. Sigh!

    These are cute and I totally need some for my bathroom!
