I’ve been busy busy busy. Making things and stuff.
I would like you to meet the bucket of seashells. It is shaped like a bucket and is shell stitched in the round, hence the name. It is the perfect size for me at the moment,it measures 7 inches wide at the bottom and 8.5 inches tall without the handles. My own design. If you are interested you can download the pattern here or click on the pdf thumbnail image. It is a pdf file with clear instructions.
