The drawstring top works really well if you are planning to carry small items inside the Jitter Bucket.
Cut two 6 x 14 inches of contrasting or matching fabric.
Cut two 30 inches of 1/4” wide ribbon.
Turn under and hem the short edges.
Make a ½ inch casing on one long edge of each.
Edge finish the other long edges.
Before sewing the side seams of the Jitter Bucket attach to the bucket ½ inch above the center divider with the finished edge toward the bottom of the bucket.
Insert a ribbon into the casings and tie ends together. Insert another ribbon from the opposite side and tie ends.
