not  sure if this is right  place  but  here goes.  my friends teenage daughter picked the  colors....   the  over all  turn out I like  but  colors...mmm not  so  much.

anyway  here it is.







what do  you think???





FINALLY  TUTORIAL  HAS  ARRIVED


Ok  so I  made this  one  a  little  smaller  than the  last  but  only because  it  is  somewhat hard to find the bucket  size that I used last time.
Everything is stitched on inch hem unless  other wise stated.
Anyway  here we  go

You will need:
Thread  and possibly a seam ripper
yard main fabric
yard  contrasting fabric
  yard sew in fleece (or batting)
2   yards   inch  elastic
3  inches Velcro
1 paint can (one gallon size)
***Optional 120 inches of in wide ribbon----so you can skip the tie making  process!

OK  now  you will want to cut out these pieces:

#1  Inside Pocket cut 2 Contrasting  11 X 5 inch pieces
#2 Upper section cut 2 main fabric  11   X 7 inch pieces
#3 Bottom cut 1 contrasting  circle 6 3/8 in across
#4  Pocket  cut 2 main fabric 14 X 4 inch pieces
#5 Pocket  cut 2 contrasting fabric  14   X 4 inch pieces
#6 Sides Cut 2 main fabric  11   X 8 pieces
#7 Ties cut 12 8 X 1 inch  or    12 pieces of ribbon 8 inches pieces
#8  Handle Cover  Cut 2 fleece 1 main and 1 contrasting 5 X 4 1/8  pieces



Ok get  the drink and chocolate ready  cause  here we  go

Piece #1 make inch hem folding under raw  edge also.


Pin wrong sides of pieces #1 to piece #2  sew  edges and bottom. Then  create 2-3 pockets  on each piece.
Place both #2 pieces right sides together pin and sew the sides together. You have created a tube

Now  sew in   a  gathering stitch inch from edge of bottom.
Sew piece  #3  right sides together to the tube gathering  and pin in place first it helps.

Turn right side out, remove gathering stitch  and set aside. This is the piece that will fit  inside the  bucket.

Take pieces #4 & #5  turn under inch and iron turn under raw edge a bit  (make sure you leave enough room for elastic to be fed thru.

Do this to all 4 pieces.
Then cut 4 pieces of elastic  11 inch  each.   Feed one thru each piece #4 and #5s
You now  have

Place a gathering stitch inch from bottom on each piece.


OK  now  take each #5 pieces gathered  at  bottom and pin wrong side to right side of #6   2   inch from the bottom.  I used zig zag to stitch in place and sides. Looks like  this.


Now take  piece #4  gather and put the raw edge right side down against raw edge of piece #5
(trust me it  works out in  a minute)   Heres  what it looks like in this part

Sew along  bottom inch hem of piece #4  NOT  SIDES  yet.
Flip #4 piece up, pin and sew sides and  along bottom of pocket.

  Sew up to create 2-3 pockets. Will be  4-6 total pockets on each piece.

Set side.

Unless  you are smarter than me  & choose  to use ribbon then you will get out all 12  #7 pieces.
Fold and iron in half.  Fold and tuck raw edges in iron and sew closed
Looks  like  this

I choose to use both  fabrics  you can  use one color  only if  you prefer.or  smarter use ribbon.
Also you will want to fold and zig zag  one edge of each tie piece.

For those that used  ribbon  take a potty break get some refills for our drinks and  some  more  chocolates  please  while  you are  up. Thanks !!

Now all 12 ties are  ready WHEW! That  was the  hard part

Take  each of the pocketed #6 piece and attach 6 ties to each like  this and sew in place.

Then along the sides fold under inch and sew.  (please excuse my sewing  my bobbin has chosen to hate me  now.)  but it  will look like   this



Ok now fold up    inch of bottom and turn raw edges (again leave room for the elastic to be fed thru).
Feed in one 6 inch piece of elastic to each pocketed section. Make sure  you secure the  edges.  Will look like  this

You should  have 2. 


Now  you can pin right sides of #6 pieces to right sides of the bucket part
Like this

Sew together..

Slip  into paint can  and flip side pieces  out over the edge (keep handle free)
Tie all 6 ties
Looks  like  this  now

..almost  done

Now  here comes the handle cover..  If you can figure a better way to make  this  please  share!!

Take pieces #8
Lay one piece of fleece then one fabric wrong side down, lay other fabric right side down then other fleece piece.  Sew together and leave hole for turningtrim corners. Will look like  this

Turn right side out sew edges.
Cut 3 inch piece of Velcro on one side of cover piece place  one side of the Velcro inch from edge and sew in place.  On other side at other end place other piece of Velcro inch from edge  will look like  this

Wrap it around the handle and TADA  you are  done!!!




Be  sure  you share  how  yours  turns  out.
