This was today's project...I needed a bucket to carry my tools, paint brushes, items, etc. when I am working on my projects and moving around a lot. Of course, my first step was to google for directions or a pattern. I found several but none of them suited me....so I guess I had no choice but to make up my own -- as usual, UGH!
Well, I started measuring my bucket and whipped one out in about an hour....not too shabby for my first attempt. I love the foam padded handle cover (with velcro) for extra comfort!
I think if I were to do it again, I wouldn't really change a thing in the design. What I would do the next time is take pictures while making it and make a pattern so I could post a tutorial for others. Here is a link for a tutorial on how to make an organizer simlar to this one. Here is another link to In My Own Style version and a indepth look at what lurks inside her "toolbox"! I do believe that any somewhat experienced sewer could look at my finished product and make one without directions. Maybe I will put that on my Bucket List...A Tutorial for a Bucket Organizer...Hmmmm???
Comments welcome and appreciated!
