Which fabric box pattern is right for you?
Before deciding on a fabric box pattern, consider where and how you will use it. This will help you pick the perfect size and the perfect pattern for your space.
Also, think about what you will be stored in this box before choosing a fabric or color. If you think the box might get a little dirty, dark-colored fabric will be a much better fit than a stark white that will be grimy quickly.
