Houston Bound

Check out my Go Bucket and Mug Bucket patterns in Hissyfitz booth #1203 at the International Quilt Festival. Creative samples will be on display. I'm so excited that I'll be there with talented quilt designer Sandy Fitzpatrick.

All tests passed!

I made a flying trip to Monroe LA to visit two grandchildren, two children and friends.  Used my Go Bucket and loved it.  Husband used his denim Go Bucket on a trip to Dallas a few days earlier, and it passed the test with flying colors.  The lining was made from an oxford weave shirt that no longer fit.  Beautiful weave and red on white stripe was perfect with the denim.  I even left the shirt pocket in for a lining pocket. I love recycling!

Note the zippered pouch that holds coins and fits securely in the bottom of the Go Bucket.  That keeps the Go Bucket stable and upright, even with water bottles and coke cups in it.  The drawstring top can roll inward or outward to for different uses.  Of course, he had the top rolled inside.

Go Bucket is Going Strong!

This is the new Go Bucket with the drawstring top opened all the way up to pack and carry anything, but in this case, baby items. It would be just as useful for quilting and sewing supplies.  From Buckets Gone Wild! organizers, it was developed from a request for such an item.  In this case, my husband wanted one for his truck.  He won't get this one.....

Go Bucket Ready to Go

Woo Hoo!
Already getting wholesale orders for the Go Bucket and the ink isn't dry. It is so versatile I can't think of anyone who couldn't use one. Purse insert, car caddy, quilt buddy, baby basket, old person's medicine bucket (my husband's words) LOL--the list goes on.

Finding Jitter Buckets

PK sent the following email today:
I bought the Jitter Bucket pattern but can't find 5 qt buckets. I've been to three Walmarts, a Dollar General store, a Meijer store and a Menards and no one has them.  Can you tell me where to find them?
My reply was that I buy mine in the paint department at WalMart. I have also bought them at Lowe’s and the local hardware store.  Please note the bucket measurements on the pattern.  
There are other size buckets out there that work, but they don’t look as good. 

Have you had any problems finding the 5 quart buckets for the Jitter Bucket pattern?

Go Bucket Work

 It was a beautiful rainy day to stay inside and work. I had my granddaughter overnight.  She studied her respiratory therapy books while I worked on finishing up the Go Bucket.  I'm down to the third pocket style and  am very pleased with the finishing details.  I've sent it to my tester and tweaked the text tonight.  It's getting so close to be finished, I'm getting excited.

Go Bucket

My new Go Bucket pattern design. Removable pouch filled with coins in bottom holds it upright. Keeps your car organized! Take your personal items from purse to purse. Drawstring top folds inside or outside to make the sides a little more sturdy.  Soft sides can fit next to you in your car. Use it for baby items in the diaper bag.  DH requested one with vinyl pockets and denim body.  I recycled a good shirt that had shrunk (LOL) for the lining and trim.  Pic tomorrow.
