    These are two sewing caddies I made for Mothers Day Gifts. Will fill them with sewing notions and fabric. Someone posted the orginal link - go to the Fons & Porter website, 1700 series and scroll down the page. You use a 5 quart pail, and screen netting (what you use in a screen door). My plastic pail was $3.50, the screen was .69 cents. I purchased 1/2 yard each of the fabrics. So this project won't break the bank and was a lot of fun. I did insert elastic around the bottom as I prefer a snugger fit.

    It looks similar to the "apron" I tie on to a pail when I am gardening. This is a beautiful caddy-much too nice for the garden. Thanks for sharing :-)
