new bike buckets!


I’m so excited about finishing these two bike buckets for my girls!

I had purchased the fabric from Flower Press on etsy.  The shop is run by a lovely and talented designer Susie Stubbs.  She is such a sweet lady!  I really wanted to save these fabrics for something special, and these buckets are it!

Our old bike bucket was looking pretty sad, too many times left out in the rain and sun (after all, it’s almost 3 years old now!).  I’m sure using oilcloth or laminated cotton would make it last longer, but I usually don’t have those fabrics on hand.  So anyway, Natalie was complaining that she didn’t have one, so I had them each pick out the fabrics they liked.  Threw in a few solids, and we were all set.

I just love these cheery colors, it really makes it feel like it’s really, eventually, possibly, inevitably going to be spring here sometime soon.  I hope!!!  I also think these would make a great kids gift.  Maybe you’re even giving them a bike, a bike bucket would be icing on the cake.  Plus all their friends would be so jealous, haha.  Be prepared to make the whole neighborhood some!

I’ll see you tomorrow with some Collage!  wohoo!

    I made one of these for my daughter using an Echino scooter print. She loves that she can pit her Nerf dart gun and stuffed animal in the basket as she rides around the neighborhood. Thanks for the tutorial.

    Oh my goodness, these are TOO cute! I think my daughter needs a girly one for the Tonka bike she inherited from her brothers. :)

    You know, with a change on the holder bit, this tutorial can be used for a hanging ‘mail catcher’ instead of dumping mail on the counterop. Thanks for sharing this again, because now I have a pattern to use for a mail catcher.

    I’ve just really enjoyed your open wide zipper pouch tutorial and am about to make your pj’s… clearly the bike buckets are only a matter of time :)

    they are SO cute! I love Susie’s designs, I’ve got her marbles in blue, the same triangle print you’ve got and a really cute lego-block print. These bike-buckets are perfect to showcase them, they look awesome. Cat.

    the bike buckets are cute, but those two girls on the bikes are the cutest!

    Another great set, Anna! I love that you come up with such interesting tutorials.

    Way behind on my blog comments, but just had to tell you I love these! If Em didn’t already have a bucket on her bike, I’d totally make one. :/

    Great bike baskets and super cute girls too!! :)

    Finally! I made 3 of these! This has been on my project wish list forever, and I finally made some time to tackle it! We haven’t even had a chance to take them for a test drive yet, but I know my girls will love being able to carry a water bottle and snack in their basket. I made one for my bike which will be great for holding my phone, keys, and bread for feeding the ducks! Your tutorial was super easy to follow – thanks for sharing it! I’m not a very advanced sewer, so I love easy projects that yield big results! The bottoms all came out a bit wonky, but, as I kept telling myself ‘it’s not a wedding dress; it’s just a bike bucket’! The imperfections aren’t really noticeable in the end! Thanks again for sharing!
