How Cute Is That? Bucket Bag Pattern

Pattern Details






Women, Girls



Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic sewing and quilting
  • Rotary cutting

Pattern Description:

Making the machine-quilted and machine-pieced panels for this cute little bag is deceivingly simple--and joining the diagonal panels for the fun bucket shape is easier than it might look. Make and join two quilted print and two coordinating pieced strips for the bag, which is lined and quilted as you go. Binding finishes the seams and upper edge. Or, for a quicker and even easier bag, make the lined version--no binding necessary! This little bag is the perfect project for using up scraps, fat quarters, and 2-1/2"-wide strips in your stash. Why not make several to give as gifts?

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 11" tall at the points; 6"-square bottom


  • See the pattern for actual requirements; fat quarters, scraps, and 2-1/2" strips are great for this project.
  • Polyester fleece
  • Fusible interfacing for the straps

You Will Also Need:

  • Thread
  • 4 large buttons for the straps (optional)
  • Hook-and-loop dot closure (optional)
