I finally finished my latest sewing project, a collapsible fabric bucket. It’s made from a heaver fabric called duck and a sort of Asian toile. I followed this pattern, which is very clear and has lots of helpful photos. I had a lot of firsts sewing this, including properly pinning and sewing circles (more difficult than it sounds) and making buttonholes. It took me awhile to interpret my sewing machine manual’s instructions but once I figured it out, I was so excited I kind of wanted to make buttonholes in everything I own! The best part is that the bucket collapses into this:
Cool, huh? You could leave it in your car or keep it in your bag and use it instead of plastic bags for smaller shopping trips. Abby wanted to use it as her travel bag, since her kibble, bone, and a few toys fit in it perfectly:
Nice try pup!
I’ll be testing several different patterns in the coming months so I thought I’d have giveaways to unload my creations. Keep in mind that this bucket is far from perfect, since I’m still a beginner. My novice will be evident, for example, if you happen to look closely and notice that the toile is upside down. Oops! You can overlook that, right?
So, here’s the scoop: Leave a comment on this post by midnight next Monday, October 15th. I’ll use a random number generator to pick a winner, whom I’ll contact and happily mail the prize to. Good luck!
P.S. Sorry the pics are over-exposed. My camera = poo.
