It's also given me a chance to dive back into my newly acquired Liberty stash ... I must use it and not just look at it - that's what I keep telling myself!
I bought this lovely platter and decided to make some little fabric bins to go with them.
Three little Liberty Bins to put whatever in ...
The pattern I used called for the same fabric to be used on the bottom of the bins as the outside ... but there was no way I was putting Liberty where it couldn't be seen (read: No-one puts Baby in a corner!).
So I used the same denim fabric for the bottom as I had for the lining. It gave the bins some extra sturdiness and durability too!
I'll put the pattern details at the bottom of this post, but can I just say that it's fantastic and, even better, it's free! The fabric bins come in 3 different sizes and are designed to nest. I chose to use the smallest of the sizes so that I could fit three on this platter.
I can see more of these versatile fabric bins in my gift giving future ... might even make one for myself ... I could always use a pretty thread catcher.
Pattern used: Matryoshka Bins by Straightgrain. I used the smallest size bin. There are 3 sizes available.
Main fabric: Liberty!!!
Lining Fabric: Denim-look Ikea Fabric (it's sold as a tablecloth)
