Sew Crafty Friday: Bucket

Here is a little bucket that I made via a tutorial on a really cool blog called "Vintage Ric Rac."
The ones over there are much nicer, but this was fun to do and an easy way to use up fabric scraps. I've made several, including one I brought to work for a little trash receptacle. My boss hasn't used it yet. She says she wants to 'respect it' for a few days before she throws Bandaid wrappers into it, LOL. I told her she has to use it sometime.

That's the funny thing about people who don't sew...even the smallest project has them in awe.

Anyway, here's the link:

This is about 5 1/2 inches high. I am using one for my hair clips and such. It's nice to have a place where I can just toss them quickly.

Those are really neat! I've been wanting something to throw thread in at my ironing board. Maybe I could do one of them for that purpose! Yours is really cool. Love the fabric!

I have a pattern like this, but you applique a bunny on the front and add a handle to use as an easter basket. Yours is really cute... I love the fabric!

Just wanted to let you know I posted some tutorial links on my site. I listed your bucket with a note that readers can find the link to the tutorial on your site!
Let me know if that's not okay! It was just too cute not to share.
