Step Two

Instructions for large bin:

Place bottom (14.5 x 7.5) piece of fabric on table with right side facing up. Place side piece (14 x 7.5) of fabric on top of base fabric right side down and centered. (¼ inch of bottom fabric will be showing on each side). Pin and sew together. Repeat on other three sides. (Please note photos are to show technique only. Sizes and fabrics may not match description.)

 

 

Step Three

Now use this piece as a template and trace onto the piece of Stiffen and cut. Line up the fusible side of the Stiffen with the back side of fabric (fabric on top) and using a pressing cloth iron to fuse together starting in the center and working your way out to the ends.

 

Step Four

With right side of fabric facing up start at one corner and fold your sides together lining up the top edge, pin and sew with a ¼ inch seam allowance. Repeat on other three corners. Use the same technique for the inside fabric, with right side facing up but without the Stiffen interfacing. Set aside.

 

Step Five

Flip the part of the bin with the Stiffen interfacing so the interfacing is on the inside. Push out corners. Fold the top edge in 1/2 inch, pin and sew all the way around.

For the handles fold long edges in ¼ inch and iron. Now fold in half and iron. Pin and stitch around handles using ¼ inch seam allowance. Pin and sew handles to inside of the part of bin that has the Stiffen showing lining them up with top edge.

   

Step Six

Making sure the right side of the fabric is facing in take the inner liner and place it inside the part of the bin that has the handles sewn on.Fold the top edge over 1/2 inch and pin to the outer side of the bin, lining up all edges. Sew all around using a ¼ inch Seam allowance.
