Just a little look at what’s been keeping me occupied lately -

Round bottomed fabric buckets – I simply can’t get enough! I made a couple of these back before Max was born – originally we used them to hold diapering supplies and baby socks, but now they’ve been moved downstairs for toy storage, and I thought a few more were in order.

I’ve been posting photos of them on Instagram (filminthefridge) in case you’d like to take a look. I didn’t use a tutorial for these – just made them up based on the size I needed – and since there was interest from those on Instagram, I thought I’d write up a little tutorial for you. I hope to have it up on Friday, should you want to make up a few fabric buckets of your own!

    These are great! I’m looking forward to the tutorial! I’ve made Maya’s buckets, but these would be neat to have a different style with the fold-over top, instead of handles.
