My sister is a travelling school therapist. She carts her therapy materials from her car to a classroom, and does this at several schools.
After experimenting with various “transportation” ideas, she settled on a milk crate on a rolling cart as her luggage of choice. This rolling plastic crate was both practical and handy but not at all pretty. Not only did her stuff show through the milk crate but items would fall through the openings.
The solution was to create a milk crate liner. See how we did it. So-o-o easy….

DIY Liner for a pLastic Milk crate
So this is probably not Pinterest’s most interestingly pretty DIY project! But it’s pretty practical. You still get great organization and storage while being able to hide all your stuff thanks to a DIY liner for a plastic milk crate.
– Plastic milk crate (here’s an example of what we used)
– Decorative fabric (we used decorative felt sheets)
– Sewing machine (Don’t want to sew? Use Heat-n-Bond fusible tape instead)
– Adhesive Velcro
how to make a milk crate liner
Measure the height and width of your crate. Figure out how much fabric you need.
With measurements in hand, sew your fabric. Since we were using felt sheets, we sewed each sheet together to form one long strip the width of the crate.Easier yet, buy one solid piece of fabric!
Add the opposite part of the adhesive Velcro to the outside of the fabric.
How do you roll?
