Storage Baskets Tutorial
I love finding tutorials on the net and making things myself and I have become especially artsy-crafty since my son was born. The latest in a long line of things that I have made are some hanging storage baskets for his toys. I found a wonderful tutorial by the Mother Huddle based on which I made them.

  • How to make a wall tidy storage unit. Storage Baskets Tutorial - Step 1
    Step 1

    First of all you will need the following materials:

    * three 20x 25.5 cm (8 x 10 inch) wooden panels (in the tutorial mentioned above you will find that Plexiglas sheets were used which you can also do, but wood was more accessible to me)
    * three 47 x 72 cm (18½ x 28 inch) fabric pieces from you outer material and the same size three pieces from your lining material
    * three 10 x 27 cm ( 4 x 10 ½ inch) pieces
    * a curtain rod for hanging the baskets
