Red, White & Blue Fabric Bucket

I want to wish all my fellow Americans a Happy Independence Day today. 

***Sale*** Scroll down to the bottom of this posting for info on the Crossover II Die Cut Machine that is on sale for 25% off!!! You will LOVE it!!!

This just happens to be the perfect project to share with you today on this American holiday. This is my project for the month of July that I made using Crafter's Edge die cuts. For this patriotic red, white & blue fabric bucket I used the 2.5" half square triangle cuts from Crafter's Edge. I used blue and white scraps to cut out the various triangles and then added strips of red to the top and bottom of the triangles and a large circle for the bottom of the bucket. I added interfacing to the wrong side of the exterior and then fusible fleece. I quilted the bottom and the red in wavy lines and I quilted 1/4" away from the blue triangles.

It is a nice large size bucket, measuring 9.75" tall x 28.25" around the bucket and 8.75" across the top of the circle opening and the bottom of the bucket circle too.

Cutting the triangles was fast and easy with the Crossover 2 die cut machine from Crafter's Edge. I used scraps from my blue and white scrap bags. I didn't use a pattern for this, I just created it as I went along.

The red top and bottom I quilted in wavy lines, and on the blue triangles, I quilted it 1/4" away from the seams.

I turned it a bit to show another section.

A patriotic bucket like this can be displayed for so many American holidays: 
Martin Luther King Jr. Day in January, President's Day in February, Memorial Day in May, Flag Day in June, Independence Day in July, Constitution Day in September, Labor Day in September, Veteran's Day in November, Election Day in November, Bill of Rights Day in December, and other days that American's might want to celebrate or remember too.
I used the 2.5" Half Square Triangles from Crafter's Edge to create this fabric bucket. What a huge time saver to cut 1/2 Square triangles with this die cut! No more squaring up triangles after you sew them. Just cut a bunch of triangles, place them right sides together and sew, that's it. They come out perfect every time.

Next month I will be sharing another project I made using Crafter's Edge die cuts. So come back in August to see what project that I will share with you then. I really love using so many great die cuts to create these projects that I get to share with you. Thanks Crafter's Edge!

The handle even folds up when not in use. See that turquoise dot on the side is really a magnet for the handle to cling to. The white part of the handle folds up and sticks on the turquoise dot.

  1. love the bag, and your cuts are PERFECT I love seeing all the points line up so nicely. great job and happy 4th.

  2. I love this fabric bucket, Daryl!! I think I would leave it out all year!! My granddaughter helped me cut the pieces for my project this month, which I am using in my "It's a Guy Thing" project! Then she made her another pillow sham, or at least got the top made and will have to stitch the applique down next time they spend the night! Happy 4th to you and your family, Daryl!

  3. Happy July 4th Daryl! Your patriotic bucket is terrific. I love the surprise of the red dot lining.
