kargrrl - I can't tell you how tickled I am with my bucket.  I told my husband about it .... and I have a friend that wants me to teach her how to sew - I keep telling her that I learned to sew thanks to Craftster tutorials - which is totally true - and I think this will be her first project.  I think she can handle it!  I am going to make another one tomorrow - I will post up my pics - I am going to add pockets!  I am so stoked!

Hooray, craftydeb! I'm so glad you figured it out (and sorry if my directions only added to the confusion...I was winging it!). I definitely want to make some of these, so I'm glad you figured it all out and then posted how you made it! And it came out lovely! Love the fabric!

I'm bookmarking this, it's brilliant!
My mom will love it, she's crazy about organization, little buckets, boxes, etc.

I managed to achieve (almost) squareness!!! Grin only problem is that I thought 20cm would be smaller...  Roll Eyes Tongue so, apart from storing inside some yarns, it stores some scrap fabric on the bottom too. I interfaced it because the fabric was too thin to keep shape, and even now the top rounds so it's like the roundsquared bucket Tongue but I love it  Grin

filled bucket



and bucket in its place in my shelf Grin

"I love this pattern!"  She yelled, and began pulling all the fabric out from underneath the bed to get started on her own fabric box

You are officially my new hero.  I've been trying to figure out how I might stretch my wee unemployed budget out to encompass some new storage spots in my craft room...but given the vast amounts of fabric, interfacing and wall space I have in there and your lovely idea, I don't have to!

silverfisch, your bucket looks awesome! The print you chose goes so well with your anime collection on the shelves. Ya-hoo!

So, who will be the first to make a batch of nesting buckets? Wink

Oh, man! I want to drop everything I am doing tonight and pick up the gauntlet that you have just thrown down...but alas, duty must prevail...

well I've been idly surfing this site all morning, about to head upstairs to my sewing machine to do something but having read this tutorial, I am going up now!! I am making buckets

I got some awesome skeleton fabric from ammasmama in a dios de los muertos swap and that is about to become a bucket, maybe a smallish one for my bathroom shelf to store make-up and stuff.


watch this space

Ok so I have made my first one (30 minutes not bad!) its a small one and supposed to be 10cm square, but its more like 9X11 because I didnt cut out the squares very well, I used three layers as the skeleton fabric was very lightweight, but even with a stiffish inner layer it was more rounded on top, so I top-sewed on the outside of each corner, from top to bottom, taking in just about 1 mm, this makes it sit square and gives a little more stability.

here it is



and the action shot


off now to make some more! Thanks for this tutorial!
