Are any of you bin-loving, organization junkies? I am, at least in theory. Bins don’t stay on the shelf very long in our living room. I’ve tried a number of toy organization and labeling methods, but interests shift and toys rotate frequently, making my hard work obsolete. So this try, I wanted something more flexible.
These simple pockets hold a 3×5 card and secure on to the bins using velcro.
I found this clear plastic vinyl in the home dec department of my local fabric shop. It comes in different thicknesses, and this one is 8 gauge. Don’t buy it too thin, or it will tear easily.
For each tag, cut out a 4 x 16 inch piece of vinyl, and 4 inches of velcro. Sew the hook velcro strip on top of one end of the vinyl, and the loop strip on the bottom of the other side. Fold up the vinyl 5 inches with the velcro on the outside to form a pocket, and sew up the sides.
To keep the vinyl from sticking, I used a non-stick sewing foot, and covered the bed of my machine with masking tape.
That should help keep the house tidy for the next 5 minutes.
