Finishing the bottom of the Jitter Bucket

Q. MM:

I have your buckets gone wild pattern for the jitter bucket.  I am going to make them for my granddaughter.  How is the outside bottom of the bucket finished.  ( the part that the bucket sits on).

At the very end of the printed instructions there is a paragraph in italics that tells how to cover the bottom. If it is not on your pattern, please let me know and I will send it to you. Also the attached site may be helpful.

New Marker from Marilyn

Marilyn Swartout asked for suggestions on marking pencils for the MB pleats.  I told her my suggestions for chalk markers, mechanical pencils, and soap slivers, but she had a better one.  She said, "Also, when marking I grabbed a charcoal pencil that I use for painting. It worked wonderfully - seemed to show up on light or dark fabric and wiped right off. This is what is written on the pencil "Generals Pastel Chalk 4474 Dk. Grey."  Gotta try it!
