Scrap Bucket Cozy

I saw a book recently that showed a quilted cozy around a mason jar that held buttons and I thought why not do something like that around my fabric scrap bucket? So I essentially made my quilt-as-you-go table runner and added some elastic pony tail holders and buttons to keep the cozy in place.

Scrap bucket cozy. This is the bucket I use to put all those scraps in that I use for stuffing for the cat beds I make for a no-kill shelter.
This shows the elastic pony tail holders and buttons to keep the cozy closed and in place. I forgot to take into account the extra plastic where the handles are attached, so that's why the top 2 buttons have that stuffed into a corset look.

Pin It Now!


  1. it always bring a smile to my face when i see an everyday item be unique and lovely. your bucket cozy is a perfect example.

  2. Daryl, I love the pony tail holder/button idea on the bucket. I will have to try making one of these.

  3. It's so pretty and has given me some ideas for covering some not very attractive containers. All I need now is some extra hours in the day. If you figure that one out please let me know. LOLLL

  4. OMG! how fun and a great idea for those boring trash can in an office! Love it Daryl. Enjoy your day:)


  5. hahaha..."stuffed into a corset..."..too funny! This is a great idea!

  6. Now that's a cute little trick.
