I made a bucket!

I've wanted to try this tutorial for awhile ... Today I finally sat down and gave it a whirl. I have to be honest and say I didn't read any of the instructions... just looked at the pictures and went from there. I used my own size fabric too.... I hate reading instructions!

I also want to matter how much you hate to do something....go ahead and DO IT! While I didn't have major would have just went alot smoother if I had READ.

All in all I'm happy and the size I made turned out to be the perfect size!! It fit one of the pencil cup things I already had perfectly. Now I have to make another one since I have two identical pencil cups! The other one looks sad and plain now.

Here's the 'before' and 'after'....

I think it's rather cute! I got the tutorial from the blog 'Ric-Ric'.... Jodie is soooo creative! Check it out if your looking for some fun stuff to try out!

Next I think I'll head over to 'Skip to my Lou' and try to make one of her Children’s Crayon and Drawing Pad Holders... I'll have to wing it but I think I might be able to figure it out. I'm sure I could find an actual pattern out there somewhere but I'll try it on my own first. I know a little girl who would love one of these!

I'll let you all know how it goes!
