Having school-age children at home can sometimes be a mess. There are a lot of things strewn on the floor like crayons, pencils, craft buttons, and small toys. This felt basket that I saw on Pinterest really captured my attention. Finally, something that could help me organize the clutter at home.

So far, I have made five of these. I’ve lined them up against the wall inside my kids’ rooms. I’m actually planning to make some more so I can give them out to other mothers who are in the same predicament as I used to. This is very easy to make – and inexpensive, too!
