DIY Fabric Bucket

Contributing Writer: Michael Ann

Hello everyone!
I’m Michael Ann, from the blog Michael Ann Made
where I love to share my crafting, sewing, and knitting projects and tutorials.
I am so excited for the chance to share a New Year’s DIY with you today!
This is the perfect time of year to get organized,
and organizing for me means new cute bins to put things in!

For that reason I created a Fabric Bucket Tutorial for you today.
It’s a quick and simple project, perfect for even the most timid seamstress.
So let’s get sewing!

Materials you will need:
1. 3 Circles cut to the size you want your bucket.
Cut one circle out in the lining, outside fabric, and heavy-duty interfacing.
2. 3 Strips cut to the circumference of the bottom, and height you want your bucket.
Cut one strip out in the lining, outside fabric, and medium weight interfacing.
3. You will also need a sewing machine, iron, scissors

Now to make it!
1. Sew the side piece into a tube.
Baste the interfacing onto the outside fabric tube and circle, stitching a little bit inside the seam line.
On the tube, make clips every half an inch or so, making sure not to cut through the basting.

2. Pin the tube to the bottom circle, right sides together.
The clips should allow you to follow the curve of the circle.
After it’s all pinned, sew it up!

3. Flip it inside out and this is what it should look like!
Now sew the lining sides to it’s bottom in the same way.

4. With right sides together, sew the top of the lining to the top of the outside,
making sure to leave a couple of inches, wide opening.

5. Flip everything inside out, and then push the lining into the bucket.
Sew up the opening, fold down an inch or so of the top, and you’re all set to go!

I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial,
and I hope that you all have a fabulous time crafting for the New Year!
Be sure to stop by anytime to say hello,
and thank you Mari for this chance to be a part of your site!
