DIY Reversible Round Fabric Bins

I made these for storing socks on a shoe shelf by our mudroom door. They’re attractive and reversible so you can change the look of your room!

Cut out the circle for your bottom.

Step 1

Step 2

You line up the marks for the fold on your fold line. Then you use this special rotary cutter to follow the line for your circle size.

I had to cut out a total of ten circles- I needed 5 bins and each bin needed a circle of the interior fabric and a circle for the exterior fabric.

Step 3

Step 4

Now you need to cut two lengths of fabric, one interior and one exterior, for the sides.

If you’re using stabilizer, you’ll want to cut one per bin for that too.

Step 5

Step 6

I decided to make mine tall enough to fold over the edge. This provides additional stability around the top edges and you get to see both pretty fabrics!

You need to fold each side piece right sides together, short ends touching. Sew using your included seam allowance.

Step 7

Step 8

Now you need to pin the coordinating fabric circle to the bottom. Sew around. I NEVER get the measurements quite right here. Haven’t quite puzzled out my problem. But I sew the bottom to the side right sides together. Repeat with the other fabric pieces.
