buckets of fun.....



These are fast becoming addictive.... It only took me a couple of hours this afternoon to make all three of these. Aren't they cute?? I didn't do the patchwork, but really like them just the same....

Look what ended up in the black/white one....



ha, ha it's a toilet paper holder....

The next one I make will be used to hold my stitching on the couch. I think it will be a bit shorter and longer/wider..

Happy Sewing,
Nancy

UPDATED - I made another one this morning. I made it wider and longer so it can hold my redwork on the couch while I stitch. It is perfect! I used leftover scraps from Granddaughter #1's quilt plus a FQ I won on a blog (which I can't remember the name)... QUILT TAFFY!! I remembered...shoot and I just won them....

I love fabric buckets. I did the same thing as you with one...it just happened to be the right size for a roll of TP. I think yours are really cute!

Oh I must make some. Everyone is doing it and I even posted about these darling buckets. I'm off to a fantastic quilts shop tomorrow so I'll probably get into trouble!
