I feel like I cannot keep my bathroom clean and organized, does anyone out there feel the same way? Really its kind of like my whole house, the sacrifices you make to have kids, no?! I try to keep my upstairs, which only has bedrooms and bathrooms, free of toys, organized and clean but I find myself cleaning it up way more often than I would like. Somehow toys end up upstairs and my bathroom shelves end up littered with things that we have to get out of the reach of little hands. Hence my decision to make these fabric baskets. I had some pretty fabric that matched our bathroom/bedroom and thought it would be fun to make some quilted fabric baskets for my bathroom.
To sew these I used the tutorial from Film in the Fridge and I just made them smaller. Instead of just using 2 pieces of fabric I quilted the main body before I sewed it to the circle bottom. I used my favorite Fairfield Nature-Fil Blend Quilt Batting, I think using two layers of fabric plus the batting and then quilting it gave it the stiffness it needed to stand up, plus the added benefit of being cute. You can see in the photo below that I didn’t do the quilting on one of them and I wish I had, that one is much more flimsy than the rest.
I’m always looking for new ways to organize my life, what are some of your favorite organizing tips? I’d love to hear in the comments!
