    On the fabric /canvas drawers I'd like to put a "pull" on the front to use to slide off office shelf. How would I do this? Want to make about 10 of these to file papers in and store without seeing all the papers in an office. I've seen a hole put in front to use as a pull. Any suggestions.?
    thank you

    It's fantastic what you are making. But I haven't the time for it (I don't take time for it), is it possible to buy them? Where can I find shops or webshops, selling fabric baskets?

    I love the fabric basket! Is there someone crafty that makes and sells them? I've been looking online and can't find any! I would like one for my infant to keep her toys in.

    I am having difficulty finding exterior fabric here in India. Can you please specify the kind of fabric required and whether i can find alternatives for it. That would be really helpful. The baskets are an amazing idea. Hope to make them.

    I love your fabric covered storage baskets. That is an outstanding way to reuse cereal boxes and other containers. I'm thinking it would be a great way to cover a coffee can too. I have several coffee cans that I'm wanting to decorate so thanks for the inspiration.

    I like these a lot, but I wonder if I'm missing something? Some of the pictures link to blogs with tutorials. Some of the pictures are just pictures with no links. There are a couple that are just pictures that I'd like to see the tutorials for.
