We have the answer to all your storage problems this week with our set of colourful and fun fabric boxes.

They are easy to make and we take your through each stage of making them with our step-by-step instructions. Each stage is photographed, too.

To make them, you will need fat quarters of cotton fabric (five), interfacing, a sewing machine and the usual crafting tools.

All the materials are available from

Flatlay of grey and mustard patterned fabric squares and craft scissors

These versatile boxes are perfect for storage in any room. And, once you have made your first set, you will be able to adjust the sizes if you want.

So why not make a set for every room? They make lovely gifts, too.
