Another round of buckets were made over the weekend. I had taken time last week to clean up the work-in-progress box and these bucket pieces had been sitting in there forever. Have you been doing any sewing spring cleaning?
So I decided instead of making them for my girls, that they would be a perfect gift to give for my cousin's new baby girl.
It'll be a great place to throw in some toys and stuffed animals. I used Ric-Rac's fabric bucket tutorial again, but enlarged them to super huge and pretty darn big sizes (12" diameter and 9" diameter). The exterior for both is made with super colorful cotton twill (which is really similar to cotton canvas), makes them a little more sturdy.
I have been thinking butterflies lately, so I machine embroidered some butterflies on the exterior. I love the little splash of spring girliness they add.
