Over 30 Fabric Baskets, Trays, Bins and Bowls Tutorials

Organization is my thing.  Well, to be honest, the idea of organization is my thing!  I can’t seem to get enough containers to get organized around my home and office.

Given the many books, shows, and Ted Talks on organizing our lives, everyone wants some of it.  That’s why we’ve put together a huge list of DIY fabric baskets and trays.

You and I can finally get organized with the wonderful, whimsical, and practical fabric baskets found here.  With these fabric baskets, bowls, and trays it is easy to organize in fashion, that’s for sure!

Here are just a few of the many fabric organizers to be found below.

Fabric laundry baskets

It is hard to believe the vast array of fabric laundry baskets. They range from fun and delightful to stately and formal. (Is it possible to have a formal laundry basket?)

Take a look at the Nested Fabric Buckets from Whip Stitch.  There are three sizes of these buckets to choose from! 

There are many other fabric baskets and fabric buckets that would be perfect to use as decorative fabric laundry baskets.

Fabric Bowl Patterns

Small fabric bowls make great organizers for the little things that tend to get lost throughout the home and office. There are so many fabric bowl patterns here that are just adorable.  I could never list them all, so please scroll down to take a look.

The Coil Fabric Bowl from HGTV is made by coiling bright and colorful fabric scraps around rope.  It makes a delightful bowl that is stylish, too. It would look great in the home and would hold all sorts of little things.

Check out the fabric bowl pattern to make useful bowl cozies!  These are very popular to use to keep food warm and to prevent burns from hot bowls fresh out of the microwave.  These fabric bowl cozies are a “must have” around the kitchen.

Fabric Easter Baskets

This is the place to find creative fabric Easter baskets!  The page abounds with them.  Use some pretty pastel spring fabrics, and there's the perfect fabric basket for the bunny to drop off Easter treasures!

The Rope Easter Basket really caught my eye. This fabric basket is made using a clothesline that is dyed then sewn into coils. The decorative handle is so cute!  Be sure to scroll down to take a look at this one!!

There are many other fabric Easter baskets to explore.  It would be fun to make one out of fabric scraps in a cute patchwork design. Use up those scraps and make an adorable fabric Easter basket at the same time!

On this page are many more fabric baskets that, with a little fabric tweaking, would make great fabric Easter baskets for the whole family.

Fabric Trays

There are several DIY fabric trays to finally get that office or sewing room organized!  These trays make a pretty place to store small office supplies like paper clips, rubber bands, and anything else floating about with no real home.

All of the trays are quick and easy sewing projects that would be great for the beginning sewist. These fabric trays are pretty, simple, and practical!

Other DIY fabric baskets, bowls and trays

Just imagine how fun it would be to make a fabric basket for a kid’s bike!  The patterns for different types of cute bicycle baskets are found below!  The kids would love one of these!

A pretty woven fabric basket would look nice anywhere in the house.  They are usually made of paper, but there is a pattern here that uses colorful fabric and stabilizer to weave this basket up.

Upcycle some old jeans or a paint drop cloth to make some DIY fabric baskets in many different sizes.  They will help get everything and anything organized.

If you are interested in upcycling fabric for other fun projects, check out our fabric scrap project page!
