101 Crafts - #98 Drawer Organizer(s)

Hi everyone!
Work was super busy this week - I am so thankful it is the weekend now.
Today I am returning again to my 101 Crafts to Make List.
#98 Drawer Organizers
These happen to be some fabric covered drawer organizers, and they work (and look) really awesome.
So everyone is familiar with the standard drawer organizers available at home stores across the country. They do however, cost money and they might not be the exact style that you are looking for.

All you will need for this project is:
- a glue gun and hot glue
- scissors
- a box cut to fit the inside of your drawer (I used a cracker box)
- two pieces of fabric (one will be the lining and one will cover the outside - you can use the same fabric or mix it up a bit if you like)

Basically you will wrap the box in fabric on the outside like a present with the ends glued down inside the box. Then you line the box in much the same manner. Don't forget to tuck all of the raw edges under and glue them down. I Don't have any in between photos but I will work on getting some for you.

One done and one to go.

Ready to use!
I use my organizers to keep my socks and underthings organized but you can use these for pretty much anything. Like I said at the beginning - fun, functional and EASY.
I love trying to find new, creative ways to reuse items around the house. Especially when they look really great once finished.
Hope you enjoyed this one!
If you have been inspired by anything you have seen on my website I would love to hear about it or see it - send me a link or make a comment.
Thanks for visiting,
