No More Knitting Mess

Posted by 2ton Inspired on November 12, 2007

The bucket was pretty easy to put together. I had to make it a bit exciting by adding a few pockets inside and a loop for scissors. Also it wasn’t holding itself up well and needed a bit of reinforcement on the lining, but it’s not bad for a first.

The fabric was left over from a cover I made for our papasan and a few pillows. I couldn’t resist using a bit of hot pink to give it a girly feel. When I find some time I may make a few patches to decorate the outside. It looks a little plain sitting all by it’s lonesome.

If I make another I probably would try to make it more rectangular in shape and not so tall. That way it can fit on the bottom shelf of the coffee table. Maybe even make a small lid for it for when guests come over.
