Fabric Buckets and Monday Link Up


I love having these fabric buckets around.  They are great to have in the baby's room, the girls' room, and even the family room!


I made this one basically the exact same way I made the quilted patchwork totes but I added in a layer of cotton duck (using this method from Oh Fransson!) and added short handles on the sides of the bucket.  It was a lot of layers to sew through (especially at the side seams so watch out!) but it did result in a sturdy bucket that stands on its own.

Your turn!  What have you been sewing lately?  Link up a recent sewing post and please, at the very least, visit the two links above yours. I would also recommend visiting back anyone who visits you. And, it would be great if you could either add the link up button (there is a code on my sidebar) or a text link in your post or on your blog.  And when the link tool asks for your name, write the name of a favorite holiday movie.

  2. I love those buckets! I desperately need one to hold all my girls' hair ties and clips. We have gone through two of those cardboard shoebox holders but the sides keep ripping after a few months. A fabric bucket would be the perfect solution.
