I cut two large circles out of fabric; one print and one plain. on the plain circle I measure in approx. 6" all the way around, mark and cut out a smaller circle. I use the smaller circle to line the bucket. I sew the 6" strip to the print circle, right sides together with a 1/4 inch seam around the outside edge, turn and press. Then I sew a 5/8" trench about 5" from the outer edge leaving an opening to insert elastic. Insert your elastic. Pull up around bucket and stuff outside of bucket with fiberfill. Then I glue it to the bucket leaving about a 4" ruffle sticking up over the bucket. Make a fabric strip out of the plain fabric long enough to go around the bucket and tie in a bow. I fill the Fall one with gourds, leaves, etc. I fill the Christmas one with pinecones and leaves painted gold. I made one with vegetables on it and filled it with fake vegetables. They turn out real nice and I have seen them for as much as $50 in craft shops. If you have any question, let me know.

I forgot to say you sew two long strips together of the print fabric, turn and sew a 1/2" trench down the middle to cover the handle. Then glue the handle on the bucket before you put the other cover on it.

Wow Sue, that sounds like a really good idea. Sounds really pretty. Too bad I wouldn't do it if I had to sew! I'm just not a sewer. I wish I was, Mom did teach us, but anyway, that is a great idea.

Sunflower and Harley Barb, I like the idea of puttting sand in the buckets and putting candles in them. We have some sand we got at a beach (more of a "cliff") in CA here on the central coast and it is really cool sand. It's like little itsy-bitsy tiny slivers of rock. It was really cool. The closer you got to the water the smaller they got. They felt really good in your hands. I have been holding on to this sand for a year now, having used it over and over again in different jars. We certainly have enough to fill an ice-cream bucket. Sounds like a fun idea!

thanks girls
