Fun for quilters that is...Space
Do you remember this little cutie?
the little bucket for the car caddy...
Well, look at her big sisters! I had the white bucket and I purchased the orange one from...you know where. They are both 5 gallons and the orange bucket was only $2.78 and a cover was 98 cents if you needed one.
Here's one sister all dressed up and ready to go to a quilt retreat, sewing class or a friend's house to sew. I had this blue canvas insert from my dad. It slips over the bucket and has a ton of pockets both outside (all around) and inside (all around).
This is what she wants to be when she grows up!!
The list of quilting, sewing, crafting supplies that you can fit into this bucket and insert is endless...scissors, hole punch, rick rack, pencils, applique iron, tape measure, circle templates
Rulers, rotary cutter...
Tape, pins, spools of thread, extra rotary blades, extension cords...
and on the inside, fabric, rulers, freezer paper, your large iron...and so much more!!
This bucket is very handy and will organize so much...all you'll have to carry to class is the bucket and your machine. I'm sure you can think of so much more to put in your own bucket, especially for different crafts.
The inserts come in many sizes and colors from different hardware stores, so go take a look at your local store and see what they have. You can also look on line. I found this one on the Home Depot site for only $9.97. I haven't seen this one in person, so I'm not sure of the pockets.
I hope this helps keep all of your things in one place when you're traveling. This is also great for all of the quilters out there who have to put their supplies away each time, because they're sewing on the kitchen table!! Just load this up and you can carry it from room to room.
Have a great Tuesday everyone,
wanted to add one more thing I just thought of...last week's TTT, the portable quilt frame, would store nicely in this bucket too, once you take it apart.
