Fabric Bucket: Zakka Handmades + Book Giveaway

[Thank you to all who entered! This book giveaway is now closed.]

Can’t resist a storage container made out of fabric.  They just go hand in hand.  I’m so happy to be a part of the Zakka Handmades blog tour today.

Zakka Handmades: 24 Projects Sewn from Natural Fabrics to Help Organize, Adorn, and Simplify Your Life is a book of beautiful and useful things to sew written by Amy Morinaka.  Amy is the blogger behind Chick Chick Sewing.  I’ve always admired Amy’s work.

I chose to make the large size Fabric Bucket.  And it’s big!  Like Amy suggests in the book, it would be great to give as a set (there are both medium and large sizes included in the instructions).  I would think a bucket like this would be a welcome gift to anyone.  I’m kind of envisioning a great wedding shower gift here, just fill it up with towels!

She indicates using pre-quilted fabric for the bucket lining, which I would have loved to have used, but didn’t have any on hand.  It would be a really nice and quick method towards making a really durable bucket, love that!  Instead I did mine the little bit longer route and quilted the exterior pieces instead.  I *almost* used them as directed as the lining, but decided it would get more use this way.

[Amy does a great job of giving tips and has many user friendly diagrams!]

Book: Zakka Handmades: 24 Projects Sewn from Natural Fabrics to Help Organize, Adorn, and Simplify Your Life
Linen from
Premier Prints Polka Dot from
Handles: Architextures and cotton twill tape for fun.
