A lot of my clients love using fabric bins to keep their kiddos organized. But they can be tricky to actually labels because the kids either peel the velcro off, throw off the plaque labels, or cut the string. This tutorial will walk you through the steps to create fabric bin labels with pictures to keep everyone organized!

No Cricut machine? No problem! Order them from The Organized Mama Store!!
Open Cricut Design Space. Create a new project. Find an image you want to use for your picture on the fabric bin.
Weld the entire object together so you only get the outline of the item. Adjust the size to find your bin. For my project, my doll was about 6″ tall and 3.5″ wide.
Click the “make it” button. Select Iron-On transfer material. And select the mirror button.
Place the iron-on material on the cut mat with the smooth side face down on the mat.
Load the cut mat into the Cricut Maker by pushing the double-sided arrow. Then push the C button. The machine will cut out the image.
Remove the iron-on material from the cut mat. Then remove all the excess material around your design.
Follow the iron-on instructions of the iron-on material. For this project and this material, I was able to lay the plastic on the fabric bin. Then I places a thin piece of fabric over the material. Pressing my iron over small sections of the iron-on material.
Gently remove the fabric and plastic from the iron-on material. I had to do 1 more press of the iron over the material in a few places to make sure it was completely adhered to the fabric bin.
Fill the bin with only the items that are suppose to go inside. For this bin, it is all the dolls!
Teach the kids how to find what they need with the fabric bin labels! I have an easy tutorial for how to declutter your kids toys that is perfect once all the bins are labeled!
