Inspired by this embroidered cherry tree in Marie Claire Idees…..
……..I stitched up my version on some cream linen.
After admiring the lovely coffee sack buckets on Maya*Made, I decided to make my own version using natural hessian, red/white checked fabric from Ikea, and some unbleached calico. I turned my stitchery into a pocket on the front, and added a small piece of printed linen to the back for embellishment.
It is quite a sizeable bucket (12 x 12 x 12 inches) – my DH thought it would be perfect for storing potatoes!! I wish we had an orchard as I can just picture it filled with apples. Instead I have made a use for it in the sewing room storing some of my supplies. I really love the different textures in this project. I am already dreaming up some other projects for my hessian.
We would like to thank Dana from Quilted Librarian for giving us an award recently! Much appreciated 🙂
