These little "buckets" are OUTSTANDING...I've made I think 8 or so now... on a roll lol.  They are good for everything...my son's matchbox cars, crayons, my nieces hair ties (she may need two lol), in the bathroom, even to hold my thread scraps while I work Smiley 

LOVE THEM - THANK YOU FOR THE EASY TUTORIAL

oooOOOooo...thanks for the tute!  Now I can just switch my brain to auto-pilot (who always whistles Bee Gees tunes, btw) and get to making them.  I love you!

ammasmama: displays!  Wonderful!

Dividers can easily be made using Timtex or another really stiff innerfacing.  Or plastic canvas - or whatever is stiff enough to do the job.

I made some!

I had just put a shelf up in an alcove in the bathroom to put all my junk..i mean necessary items on, and i discovered that i had too much crap for one shelf. i was looking on craftster for a solution and this is it! i made five, but then had to put my perfume on the shelf too, so the spare one is now full of my hand spun yarn in the other room. (i haven't spun much yet lol)

i made them each from 2 pieces of fabric 16.5"x 11" and no interfacing. they are kind of floppier than they could be, but they work fine as long as they don't contain really heavy things. Square things work great and add to their solid shape. I used denim from my dh's old baggy skater jeans, and some cotton print stuff i did cushion covers for the living room with.

Thankyou so much for this pattern you are so clever!! look how organised my crap is now!






i love them and want to make huge ones to throw more crap into...no-one need ever know the full horror of my hoarding! Grin Grin Grin

I don't have any cabinets (well one over the sink for dishes), so I want to take my old crappy bookcases and make an island. Then, on the shelves I can put food and stuff. But, since I want it to look nice, I want to make a bunch of these. I was wondering how to make a stiff bottom and you may have solved my problem. Plastic canvas sounds ideal! but, if the buckets get dirty, will I be able to wash them okay? If I only put the canvas in the bottom? I was thinking of making a removable bottom panel, but if something spills, the bottom is the thing I'll need to wash the most...

what about making a pocket on the bottom to slide the plastic into? you could just button/zip it back up again after washing. just a thought.
