I had seen these buckets turn up on various blogs and I had bookmarked them in my mind as useful things to have for Mausi’s toys, winter mitts, knitting projects, dog toys and the like. Driving past a favourite fabric shop the other day I made a quick stop to see what was new. I can’t quite settle on fabric on a normal day, but coupled with pregnancy indecisiveness and too many projects vying for attention at once, and I flitted through the fabric shop from one bolt to another as a hummingbird would from flower to flower. I started out with quite different fabric in hand, and how on earth I ended up with black and white japanese styled cats and red fabric is beyond me.
I do quite like how the two fabrics work together however, and the dash of red looks quite nice against the sprinkling of snow in the garden. Not that I suppose the bucket will spend much time outdoors…
Maya’s pattern was easy to follow, and the bucket came together quite quickly. The bucket is not quite as stiff as it could be, as I used only two quilting weight cottons and cotton batting between. However, as a bucket to keep wooden blocks together, this one seems to works just fine! Mausi does insist on calling it a ‘bag’ though…perhaps the next one ought to be more rigid.
