Pattern Description:

The Tote-All-Bucket is an upcycled, recycled 5 gallon bucket and was initially designed to carry my soft doll-making supplies to the monthly meeting of the Fabricators Doll Club in Little Rock. We all needed something to carry our supplies, and I was asked to teach a class on it. From there, I taught classes and began making the Tote-all-Bucket for family and friends for a wide variety of purposes..

Customers have used this pattern for children's toy storage, overnight camping trips and of course, all types of sewing, knitting and quilting work.

  • 3/4 yard medium weight vinyl or pet screen
  • 10 yards extra wide double fold bias binding

  • Optional - 1 yard coordinating fabric for pockets
