Thank you! I just started a hand-piecing project (something to do while watching TV), and thought, "Gee, I could use some fabric bins to keep all these bits and pieces from taking over the coffee table; I wonder if I saved that tutorial I saw online a while back..."
PERFECT solutions, with perfect timing!

Thanks for collecting these in one place. I've made about 40 of the pink penguin style only with solid sides instead of patchwork, saves about 30 minutes a basket. Great post.
