I'm so excited about finishing these two bike buckets for my girls!
I had purchased the fabric from Flower Press on etsy. The shop is run by a lovely and talented designer Susie Stubbs. She is such a sweet lady! I really wanted to save these fabrics for something special, and these buckets are it!
Our old bike bucket was looking pretty sad, too many times left out in the rain and sun (after all, it's almost 3 years old now!). I'm sure using oilcloth or laminated cotton would make it last longer, but I usually don't have those fabrics on hand. So anyway, Natalie was complaining that she didn't have one, so I had them each pick out the fabrics they liked. Threw in a few solids, and we were all set.
I just love these cheery colors, it really makes it feel like it's really, eventually, possibly, inevitably going to be spring here sometime soon. I hope!!! I also think these would make a great kids gift. Maybe you're even giving them a bike, a bike bucket would be icing on the cake. Plus all their friends would be so jealous, haha. Be prepared to make the whole neighborhood some!
I'll see you tomorrow with some Collage! wohoo!
