I made 2 round buckets, intending to use them, wherever. The first one is soooo tall though! I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me that it was this tall?
my brain is a mystery to me sometimes.I will give you the directions
and measurements for both sizes, although I like the shorter one best.
pellon 2 sided craft fuse heavy duty
1 each inside and outside fabrics: tall: 25 1/2″ (vertical) x 30 1/2″ (horizontal) ; short: 17″ (v) x 30 1/2″ (h)
1 base circle 9 1/2″ diameter interior and exterior and pellon
1 piece of pellon : tall bucket: 20″ x 30 1/2″ for shorter: 12″ x 30 1/2″
take your interior panel, on the wrong side iron the craft fuse with
the bottom lined up. It will fall 5″ short of the top, we want to leave
that for the fold over part. In order to avoid sticking the fuse to
your ironing board, place parchment paper on the exposed side. you can
just pull the parchment paper off before the next step.
2- 3 are the same for inside and outside
fold your interior fused piece in half to create a tube with right
sides together. you want this tube TALL. so fold it horizontally versus
vertically. (does that make sense?) stitch the long side.
3. working slowly and patiently, with right sides together, stitch your base circle to your tube.
time to combine your two buckets. with wrong sides together insert the
inside bucket into the outside shell. smooth. iron. you should be
able to reach inside your bucket to iron the sides. this will help by
fusing that other side of the craft fuse to the outside shell.
press a turned under seam at the opening at top. topstitch. If you
want to add handles at this point, that is totally doable : insert your
handles between the front and back turned under seams and topstitch
6. admire. turn your overlap down to give some contrast.
