DIY Simple Fabric Bucket


One thing I use a lot is these little fabric buckets. I typically use it as a "scrap caddy" for thread and all the little scraps that add up. This is also good to make for supplies, nick nacks, and even for gifts. You can add a mason jar in the center and add things to make a "gift bucket."


Make your own in this quick tutorial below.

Measurements above. I used a small bowl to trace the bottom. Use a medium to heavier material with a stiffness like cotton duck or canvas. You can adjust the measurements to be wider or longer just be mindful there is no liner or interfacing.

Fold right sides together and sew (1/2" seam allowance). It's a good idea to finish the seam allowance raw edges. I serged mine, but if you don't have a serger use a bias tape or even Dritz Fold-Over elastic over the seam allowance. 

Fold the top hem over 1/2", press, and stitch.

Pin bottom circle right sides together with main bucket piece. Sew (1/4" seam allowance).

If you don't have a serger, finish the seam allowance with a Fold-Over Elastic or bias tape.
