Great idea! I was even thinking of doing this with a large sturdy cardboard box or even a bought storage box. The ones they sell for file storage etc. even come with a lid and are fairly sturdy just for storage. I think they'd be cute covered in fabric, and I wanted to use them for storage of sewing supplies, fabric, hobby supplies, throws, etc... I also get the scoopable kitty litter in a large box and figured with some packing tape I could make the lid more secure and cover the box and lid with fabric; would make a pretty box for sewing storage; just have to be sure to use a fabric that covers the print on the box without it showing through.

Wow! What a great idea! I have bought so many pop up toy boxes and stuff like that for my daughter's toy's, and I just can't seem to find one that is the right size! You have given me a great idea, and I love crafts, so I am excited about having a new project to get into, thanks so much!

I did spray the top of the lid and fit the fabric, the cover still snaps shut. The best part is that the lids are not even a safety hazard like some of the toy boxes. I have to push the ends for them to close tight. She can't fall in it because they're packed, and if she did, I have the peace of mind in knowing that she wouldn't be stuck in it and nothing will slam on her fingers. I'm going to have to make another one soon! I hope to post a picture of one of them soon.

I think that is a great idea, and I think I will make one for my craft box. I will also cut a large piece of fabric for the lid and just glue the lid in the center of the fabric and let the fabric hang down on the sides.........Thanks a lot for the great idea.
