itty bitty fabric buckets

Maybe you remember my tutorial for round bottom fabric buckets? I posted it way back when with instructions for two sizes. Recently when I was asking my friend for teacher gift ideas she suggested mini fabric buckets to hold a baby potted plant. Yes! I thought it was perfect and quickly set to work adjusting the sizes to create this tiny version.

This baby size might be my favorite! They’re so cute and quick to make, and really, don’t we all need more tiny containers to hold little treasures?

I used Erin Dollar’s Arroyo fabric for the exterior of this bunch – they’re printed on Robert Kaufman Essex and I like the extra structure the linen blend provides.  Coupled with a bit of interfacing (I used Pellon 931TD fusible midweight because that’s what I had on hand), these little buckets are quite sturdy!

I’ve updated the fabric bucket tutorial to include the measurements for this little size, so head over there if you want to make up a few of these!

  1. I love this. I wanted a little bucket to make a container for my dog’s medication that I can leave on the container so I don’t forget to give them to her. These are the perfect size. Thank you!

  2. These are adorable! I have to hop on to the tutorial to get the measurements. I know what I’ll be doing to the next few days. 🙂

  3. I have some old jeans that I think would be perfect for this project. It will just need some vibrant cotton for the lining.
    Do you think I’ll still need interfacing with denim?

  4. SO CUTE! Thanks so much for using Arroyo in your projects — it’s such a treat for me to see folks using my designs for projects like this. 🙂
