I made something Valentine’s-y using my Hold it Bin Pattern + Squeeze Fabrics….Because it’s so fun to see fabric come to life when it’s sewn into a project. And really, I can’t resist making these tiny bins.
I wish I could send you a spritz of the freshly-opened-Reese’s-peanut-butter-hearts bag through the screen. Because it is soooo good. I’ve been saying this for years, but the best way to get fresh Reese’s peanut butter cups is to buy them during a holiday. They’re guaranteed to have perfect peanut buttery consistency! (Instead of being chalky and old). YUM.
And you thought this post was going to be about heart fabric.
Okay it is!
Just pour some yummy candy in there and you’ve got a fun little gift! A handmade touch really makes a gift feel extra special.
And, since love is in the air….I’d love to see you make these too!
The HOLD IT BIN PATTERN is 25% off until Valentine’s Night, 2/14/21.
Use the Code HEARTBIN at checkout.
And if you want to sew together….

These videos walk through all the basics, with good tips and tricks. I’ll even show you where I messed up. Arg. But there’s an easy fix!
The project is all about the prep: fusing the interfacing, cutting out the pieces, the felt layer, etc. And once that’s done, the sewing goes really fast! And the pattern comes in 14 sizes. So there’s something for everyone.
Happy early Valentine’s Day.
And Happy Binning!

Thanks Helen! They were fun to make with all those hearts! 🙂
Writing from Australia and have just heard of the weather crisis and water shortage – hoping you are all doing ok over there – such an awesome state!!!!
Well,,,,,,I made up the small size today. Also made a big mistake, totally MY fault! I grabbed my Peltex instead of DecoBond and fused that to the fabric and proceeded to make the bin. Unable to sew it with the machine for the topstitch, and now I know why! I’ll hand sew it, and consider it a lesson learned.
Oh bummer! Whoops! Well you’ll have a very sturdy bin! 🙂 I’m glad you had fun with the pattern 🙂
I finished up the lid to this bin the CORRECT way last night. it fits my hulked-up bin in spite of my mistake. It was sure easier to sew with the correct interfacing!
I posted on my IG account tonight and tagged you in the picture, so I hope you can take a peek. Also hashtagged it to the #holditbin page.
Thanks for the great pattern!
