slm - garbage/recycling-in-one-basket
Wanting to recycle with ease but having enough space to have 2 bins under my desk, I came up this 2-in-1 jobie. I put recycling in the fabric bag and garbage in the space left in the bin. This works really well as I often have many small bits of paper and having them in the bag makes it so easy to transfer to our main recycling bin.
To make the bag, I measured the diameter and height of the bin. I cut out a piece of thick cotton twill as wide as the diameter plus seam allowance (I pretty much always use 1/2") and double the height of bin plus seam allowance so I would only have two seams to sew (lazy me). I folded the fabric in half widthwise, stitched up the side seams and boxed the corners (here's a tutorial). Done!
