It's all in a day's work.....

This gardener's bucket tote is the project of the month I will be teaching this Saturday! Making it was my "day's work" at the shop!

The pattern is in the current issue of QUILT magazine. Using a 5 gallon bucket, it makes a very stable and portable organizer for garden tools, gloves, seed packets, sun glasses, water bottle and so forth.

I chose a drapery-weight, large floral fabric for the background and used co-ordinating striped fabric and green leafy fabrics for the pockets and trim. [Thank-you Macrina, for the bundle of fabrics, some of which are used here!]
I also made a matching smaller tote using a 5 quart bucket.

These instructions are on-line at QUILT magazine's website.

Now I have one of those "day's off" tomorrow...yeah!

I love that idea...would be great for crafting supplies, too. I have my hot glue gun in a sort of bucket! lol Thanks for the link! ♥
