    VW Bus Bucket

    A request was made by my DH to make this large sized bucket out of some fabric he found and purchased. This is the 3rd bucket I have made. The pattern came from Terry Atkinson designs. It measures 14 inches in diameter. Thanks for looking.

    I like your fabric combination! Very striking. What do you use your fabric bucket for?

    That is so neat. What makes it stand up, the kind of stiffening you used?
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    Wonderful! Is this a cover for the 5-gallon type buckets you can get at places like Home Depot? Or does it stand on its own?

    Thank you all for the kind compliments. What helps it stand up is a a product called "Stiff-stuff" or you can use Peltex-70 a different type of stiffener. Both are cut out to size and sewn into the fabrics. Very easy pattern to make.

    love your pattern,, great idea
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
