KAIA Mini Fabric Bin--Pattern Review!!!

I was given the opportunity to review the pattern for this adorable bin.  I did not pay for the pattern, but the opinions are my own. KAIA Mini Fabric Bin

These little bins are adorable, and a great scrap buster.  The first one took about 45 mins, from printing to pressing.  I had to print it out, tape it together, and read through the directions, choose fabric, and sew it up.  The next ones went a lot faster.

These would be great for Christmas gifts, filled with some candy canes (I didn't have any on hand).

The pattern calls for tracing paper, well I didn't have any, so instead I just cut out the zig zag on the top, and laid it down on the fabric, and traced it.  It worked really well, so don't sweat it if you don't have any dressmakers carbon paper.  

I made 2 of them with a heavier interfacing, and the Pug one with a lightweight interfacing.  It folded down easier, showed fewer creases, but wasn't as sturdy.  So it depends on what you want to use it for.  Personally I prefer it a bit stiffer, it held up the pencils and anything else, and will keep it's shape.

So if you're looking for a quick project, something to stock craft sales, teacher gifts, or a beginner sewing project, go check out these adorable KAIA Mini Fabric Bins
