Scrappy Fabric Buckets

I have wanted to make some black, white, and red fabric buckets out of my scraps ever since I made some from mini charm packs last fall.  

So one day when my mom was over quilting, I pulled out some 2.5 inch square scraps and sewed them together.  

They turned out so cute!

One went home with my mother and the other stayed with me.  Her favorite color is red and she also loves the black, white, and red color combination.  

I had just showed my mom a super cute mini quilt that Sandra made for me, so I had her on my mind.  I know her favorite color combination is blue and green.  I had to drop everything and make a bucket for her out of my aqua, green, and navy scraps.  Those scraps were little 1.5 inch strings.  I decided to piece them through the batting in a quilt as you go fashion.  

Then I squared it up at 8.5 by 6.5 with 2 inch squares cut out of the corners.  I remembered that I already had some quilted fabric left over from my Tiara cover and trimmed that to size as well.  

I sewed it together and added a binding scrap to the top.  I love how it turned out and Sandra does too.  ;)  

I think it is cute even on the bottom of the bucket.  

There are some great patterns already written if you would like to make a similar fabric bucket or thread catcher.  


P.S.  I will be linking up with Oh Scrap and Sandra's next Dreami Party.
