When our boys were little there were toys and books all over the place. I discovered early on that if you put the clutter in a cute basket, suddenly you can call the mess “decorative.”
In the vain I thought about all the sewing stuff I have sitting around…all the fabric for a quilt, the embroidery threads and fabric for Christmas gifts, etc. If I put it in something-voila! It looks intentional.
Here in St. Louis we have a service called “Fruit My Cube.” They deliver fruits and veggies to our work each week. I have collected many of their boxes–nice size and very sturdy–just not in keeping with my studio theme.
Time for a little fabric magic. I used some white card stock to prevent the print from showing through.
Then I covered the box with some aqua chevron fabric I had. I I used some spray adhesive and basically wrapped it like a present.
Not bad, but it needed a little something more. A handle perhaps?
Picked up the grommets and cotton cording at Jo-Ann’s and I was ready to go.
I added the grommets and the rope. Love it!
Here is the red version.
