So I was feeling the need for a quick sewing fix, as we were out of town last weekend (a 3-day holiday weekend here in Ontario, Family Day!), visiting with family far away, so no sewing. It was actually great, as I needed some time outside in the snow with my boys!
Anyway, this bucket bag is made following the Craftsy course, Bag-Making Basics: Drawstring Bag & Bucket Bag. It’s FREE! This little bag is neat. It stays open, and that’s exactly what I wanted for my knitting.
I bought this fabric from a new shop here in Ottawa, called Fabrications*. They’ve got some lovely organic cottons, it feels so soft and is fabulous to sew with. I bought 1/2 meter of 3 pieces, and had plenty for 3 different little sewing projects (with leftover). These will make a nice break from the long projects.
Now I just need to find some real fusible fleece, which the pattern calls for. I could only find fusible batting, and it’s not quite right for this, too thick. But, it turned out well enough, and I love the fabric colours.
Oh, here’s a few pics from last weekend. Can’t resist! The deer were on the front lawn after dinner! My BIL had some alfalfa left out for them. It’s their very own skating pond! Keeping warm at the side. Climbing up the hill for another run down to the lake. It’s quite steep! Oliver! Great weekend!

* For anyone in the Ottawa area, I just found out about this place from Tasia’s post a little while back. This is one of the new shops that now stocks her Sewaholic patterns. Great news for around here, as I don’t know of any other shops that carry such a variety of (non-quilting) indie patterns . They also carry patterns by Colette, Amy Butler, Megan Nielsen, Oliver + S, and some others I’ve never seen before or read about.
