SO i was so excited about my bucket that I decided to make anothe one, with a fleece lining. did you know that fleece is not a very good fabric for making things stiff? you knew? of course you did… i shoulda known as well… so that project was cast aside in favour of this gorgeous box tutorial

the fabric came from my friend Samantha in Japan. A fat quarter of gorgeous hedgehogs. I so love them! thanks Sam!

buckets of fun

I think its cute.. I didnt have any iron on fleece, so I used an old fleece blanket and quilted the outside. But, I forgot to do that with the inside piece… I was rushing cuz I wanted results… oof…
