  • printable storage cube pattern
  • fabric scissors
  • sewing machine with matching thread
  • iron and ironing board


Cutting Fabric

  • Lay fabric out on a flat and smooth surface and place the paper pattern on top of the fabric, aligning the grain lines and cut along the solid lines.


  • Fold the handle pieces in half lengthwise and press with an iron. Next, fold and press in the long outer edges by ½” as shown leaving the short ends unpressed. Stitch then edges together.
  • Position the ends of the handle with the side piece aligning the notches. Baste stitch the handles in place and then sew the upper side piece with the lower side pieces aligning notches and sandwiching the handle in between.
  • With right sides together, position the bottom of the side pieces with the center of the long rectangular piece. Sew the pieces together with a ½” seam allowance.
  • Form a corner by sewing the adjacent sides together and sewing with a ½" seam allowance. Repeat for remaining 3 corners until a cube is formed.
  • Fold over the top edge of the cube by 1” and press. Then fold over again and topstitch in place.
