Hello friends and Happy Friday!! I’ve been busy getting our home ready to list on the market. So we have been renovation, packing, purging, organizing, and cleaning like crazy for the past few weeks. I noticed that my daughter’s stuffed animal collection was taking over her bed (do you have a child like this?). This is not eye candy for a potential buyer, so I created a quick and simple solution. A simple, yet adorable Simple Plush Toy Bin. Complete with glitter letters of course.
Since we will be having people walk through our home, I need easy quick ways to pick up toys and clutter on a moments notice. Bins and baskets are great for that! When my relator calls, my daughter can easily put her plush toys into her labeled bin and we can be on our way.
Here’s how you can make your own! You will need:
- Fabric bin
- Iron on vinyl letters
I used my Silhouette Cameo to design and cut out my vinyl glitter letters, but you can easily purchase the letters done for you if you don’t have a vinyl cutting machine. Here’s how I made mine…
1. Design your label on your Silhouette software, making sure to measure the surface you are going to apply it to first.
2. Once you get the text how you like it, select the text and left click on the image. Then select “flip horizontally” so that your text is backwards.
3. Once your text is backwards (mirrored), you can cut the heat vinyl according to Silhouette and heat vinyl directions.
4. Weed your heat vinyl so that only the letters/words remain.
5. Make sure the surface of your bin is clean and lint/dust/hair free. Iron over the surface to heat it up a bit.
6. Apply the vinyl and press it down really, REALLY good. You can use a credit card or driver’s license for this too.
7. Iron over the top of your vinyl (leaving the plastic on). Some vinyls suggest you lay a towel over the top, but my iron doesn’t get hot enough to go through a towel, so I iron right on it very carefully.
8. Peal the clear plastic sheet off slowly, making sure all letters are secure on the bin. If not, run the iron over it again.
Fill it with stuffies and that’s it! This organization project is so versatile too. You can change the color of the bin, vinyl, and even the wording. We are thinking of doing this to all of my daughter’s bins to make organization a breeze!
Have you taken the kids to see Disney’s new movie, Inside Out, yet? My daughter absolutely LOVED it and hasn’t stopped talking about it all week. So of course when we were at Walmart the other day, she noticed her favorite characters (read: all of them) as stuffies and even fruit snacks.
We started her collection off with the three ‘girl’ characters from the movie, but her bin has room for the other two so I’m sure it’s just a matter of time.
Head to your local Walmart and grab some of the Inside Out toys. You can even stash them away for future birthday or Christmas gifts (sick that I’m already thinking abou that, right?).
So tell me friends- Who was your favorite character from Inside Out? Joy, Anger, Saddness, Disgust, or Fear?
