Sew you wanna know how much time it's going to take?
About 2 hours or less, with plenty of coffee breaks
Since all activities have moved in doors for the winter months, I'm always trying to contain the clutter that seems to get worse this time of year! Maybe it's all the unwrapped presents that accumulate or the wrapping paper, bows and ribbons that get dragged out from the basement.
I've always loved my bucket totes, but this year I've kicked it into high gear using them by the Christmas tree to have a place for the dog toys that get dispersed throughout the house and all the baby toys that seem to have blown up in a six foot radius.

These totes make for great organizing bins but they don't need to hide in a closet, with the awesome prints you can pair together, these make great ascent pieces in your home - and give a home to all the things that will wind out on the floor in about 30 seconds after you put them away.
What's awesome about the Bucket Tote, is the pattern is FREE! These bucket totes come together easily in a couple of hours from start to finish. The one in the pictures is a medium size.
Tips to avoid the dreaded seam ripper:
-Make sure to have a frixion pen for marking the triangles at the bottom of tote for sewing
-Ensure your handles aren't twisted prior to sewing them into place
-Have a mallet handy to flatten the top seam before topstitching around the top of the tote. You don't need this but it will make the finished tote look that much better.
Use what you have in your sewing stash and whip up a couple this afternoon, or feel free to browse the online store for a Formation Bucket Tote Kit or purchase a Bucket Tote Interfacing Kit and pick out your own fabrics and handles to make a one of a kind decor item for your home!
