I call this a book bucket. Sometimes I call it a buckety basket. I (clearly) have no idea what else to call it and I’d appreciate any ideas for a name, because I really don’t think bucket is the right name. And buckety basket definitely isn’t the right name.
It was super fast to make and although my way of making it was harder than it probably had to be it was still fairly easy. I recently started reading trashy (and often hilarious) romance novels handed along from my mum and they’re all over the place so I thought a nice fabric buckety basket might be a nice way to contain them. It’s a little bit floppy and could have done with some interfacing of some sort but it serves its purpose. Version 2.0 will be stiffer. I’m going to make one for my fat quarters, one for the spare change and receipts I fill the bottom of my handbag with, one for the household medications that end up scattered far and wide. The possibility of what to use these for is endless.
By the way the craft fair was…craptacular. I did sell a few things (including two of the reading cushions, yay!) but when the most popular stall appeared to be selling stuffed toys made of NEON fake fur I realised that this was definitely not a fair I’ll be doing again. I’ll be listing the unsold things in my store over the next 24 hours as I take photos.
