nesting burlap buckets and pattern testing


I've finally written up a pattern for my square buckets! After experimenting with various measurements, I created two new sizes in between the smallest and largest. All four nest perfectly. The pattern will be available in my shop on Monday, but I was hoping to have your help first. I'm looking for a couple of testers to make sure the writing is clear and the instructions are simple. If you're interested and have the time/desire to make a bucket this weekend please contact me, and I'll send the pattern right over. It's not necessary to make them out of burlap, so no worries if you don't happen to have a coffee sack on hand.

NOTE: I have my testers! Thanks immensely for your quick and amazing response... my inbox doesn't know what hit it. I'm so grateful to each of you that wrote in with your willingness and enthusiasm.

Hope you all have a fantastic and loving weekend! Pin It

  1. I've been wanting to make some bucklets for my fabric scraps and other bits.
    These are so cute...
    So if you still need someone to test it, I'd be honored.

  4. I would love the opportunity to test this pattern. I bought the round bucket pattern last year and was getting ready to make some more to use around the house, but I'm really loving these square ones. I'll definitely be stopping by the shop on Monday!

  5. I'd be more than excited to make buckets this weekend. I have the burlap all ready! We have a wonderful coffee shop in the area that roasts its own Fair Trade beans and is glad to hand on the bags for others to use!

    Thanks!
