Crochet Buckets

I am first a knitter.  I have always wanted to crochet.  For some reason crochet just didn’t click with my brain for the longest time.  And then I got it!  I can’t tell you what it was…the time was just right.  Or, 3x the charm…  All that to say, don’t give up on crochet! It is pretty inexpensive to start, crochet hook+ yarn, and it is a great hobby to take on the go.  Plus, if you learn basic crochet, you can make adorable buckets like this one!

I love this project for so many reasons!  Once you know the “formula” for making one of these, you have complete control on the size of it–width and height.  You can also do some really cute things with the binding top and label.  I can see using these in any room of my house.  Or fill it full of sweet goodness and gift it to a friend!

Here at The Handmade Girl, we want you to try new things or pick up old talents that might have gotten rusty over years.  One of my biggest pieces of advice when learning something new is to use online resources.  I can’t tell you how many times I have watched online videos!   Get busy googling if you get stuck!  One step at a time.
