a fabric bucket for carrie
I can show this to you now because Carrie received her package yesterday. I was a bit behind in my Christmas sewing this year (this is the only gift I sewed, as a matter of fact), but I did manage to complete this at the first of the year, which I consider a success.
When I was visiting Carrie last fall, I realized that I had never made her a fabric bucket! Nor a zippered pouch! Now I have partially corrected that. It was fun to package this up with some jam and tumbled rocks and such and send it off to her.
The bucket pattern is from Maya Made. It's a fun pattern that always sews up nicely. Hopefully starting off the new year with a sewing project bodes well for more sewing in 2012. I have in mind simple things like bags, table runners, patchwork quilts, and zip pouches. What are your sewing plans this year??
(By the way, the outer fabric is from Ikea. The lining is from JoAnn.)
(Also by the way, when I clicked over to Maya's shop to find the link, I noticed she has some new patterns--for nesting fabric buckets and a cotton knit skirt. More sewing inspiration!)
