easter gathering bucket-sweetstitch

I have been smitten with the idea of gathering buckets for the longest time.  I love the idea of a soft fabric bucket being used year after year instead of those plastic, weird color ones at the dollar store that tend to break quite quickly! (then the cat starts eating those little plastic scraps - well...that's another story).  Determined to make some this year this is what I came up with - essentially my little fabric bin with some cute cotton handles.  Do you use fabric buckets?  My kids still like to do the easter egg hunt and I always try to get them an edible treat.  If I have time I will try and make some for them.  I have been preparing for an upcoming spring craft show a little bit outside of Ottawa...more on that later!

  1. A basket to go with the eggs!
    Of course!!

  2. Super duper adorable! I've never heard of this before, but I love it!

  3. Love fabric baskets because when they are not in use - they collapse!
