well, this was an undertaking. i'm sure there were several factors contributing. my brain was numb from the cold. i was a bit tired after running around playing in the leaves with schoolchildren this afternoon. whatever the reason, my unpicker has done some work today.

i was having a bit of trouble reading the pattern.
 there was some debate between how to sew up the tube ends.
 i said one way, my friend JAN insisted it was the other.

JAN was right. (know~it~all)
more unpicking.
all in all, the first bucket got unpicked a funny total of 4 times.
an argument ensues. now JAN isn't speaking to me at all.
come on, really?
finally, the buckets are finished. my old sewing friend and i are back on the mend.
she isn't that bad, she's pretty fantastic really.
just a bit of a snob, cause she's prettier than most..
{ thank you jodi for the bucket   pattern !  }

  10. tied my unpicking record! But you ended up having much more to show for your aggravation than I did. ;)

  11. Oh, I've been wanting some fabric buckets! I love yours! I may have to give it a try, but I'll be sure to locate my seam ripper (unpicker) first. Mine always go missing...

  12. Man those are cool and so all purpose; nice job!

  13. Your buckets look great in the end!

  14. The buckets are fab. I have come into possession of a coffee burlap sack and am thinking of making some buckets with it. I don't have a pattern, though, was gonna try and wing it...

    Good to know that you and JAN are back on speaking terms too ;)
