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 cart 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.

how to make a fast, easy sew 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.

Add a hem to fit the crate’s height.
