I made these buckets from the tutorial but forgot to post them here.  They were in the "curse word swap" and let me tell ya, I said plenty of curse words when I realized that I had stitched the labels UPSIDE DOWN!  THREE times!
My mom said that would make interesting hats.

But I got over it and sewed a handle to the opposite side so partner could decide which to present to visitors.

when i first saw that i thought "oh that's clever, she made the cuss words upside down so it would be more subtle."

so, you know, you could pretend it was SUPPOSED to be that way...

creative criticism always appreciated!

Cute buckets! They would be great for yarn and fabric storage. Or a couple of small ones by the door for keys and sunglasses or a couple of big ones in the winter for hats and gloves!

Can you tell I have a thing for pretty storage containers! It really is a sickness, it is nearly to the point that my husband has started to comment, you know like they do when you bring home more fabric or yarn  Embarrassed.

Oh! I just thought of the perfect place for one! If I could figure a cover for one then I could make a new box for all of the ipod and phone chargers! I keep them all in a decorative box near the computer desk. Thanks for the inspiration!

I can think of so many uses for this such as for storage on shelves, as opposed to lined wicker baskets.  I will be using this tutorial, I think.

You got me hooked!! I made a box for my lil one glasses, as she keeps putting them anywhere but where they should be... She just loves it!! I made it rectangular, with a small heigh. And I top stitch the sides, to keep the shape...

I also made a 20cm x 20cm box, following this wonderdful and addicting tutorial... I don't have a pic right now, as my APN batteries just died... I will edit later today Smiley

edit: here it is!

Making the boxes IS addictive.

I love the way yours turned out. You made really good fabric choices and it looks super professional. I wish I had some of these to store my knitting in but my sewing skills arent the greatest.

Thank you for the tutorial on these buckets.  Reading through this post, it is a joy to see all the different interpretations of the tut.  Each one is unique!
