Embroidered Bins for Coat Closet

I'm trying to catch up with my winter projects (now that it's spring!!) and am putting the finishing touches (after painting) on the foyer.  I still want to install a new rod and shelf in the coat closet and shelving in the craft closet but both of those items are a bit lower on the list.  I will post on the final results of the foyer in a few days.  

As for my bins...
Organization was needed in our coat closet.  We all needed our own space for our items.  I found these bins at Walmart for a mere $3 a piece!  Yeah!  AND our bins needed personalized!  I decided to embroider our names on the bins.

How I Did It
1.  I designed our names using my Generations embroidery software.

2.  I had to rip the seams of the bins in order to take them off the the metal frames.

3.  I embroidered each of the bins.

4.  I re-stitched around the tops of the bins to re-secure the fabric to the bin's metal frame.

5.  I filled the bins with each of our items and placed them on the shelf in the coat closet.
