The Little Blue Bucket

I found this little leather like blue bucket at Goodwill yesterday and I knew immediately that it was going to be the bottom to go with my white and flowery skirt! I couldn’t believe my luck.

So I plan on making a bucket bottom purse. You may or may not know what I am talking about if you were alive in the 70’s 🙂

Little round fruit baskets were used to make a purse. They were painted pretty colors and material was attached to the top inside of the basket and I think they had a drawstring closure. Not sure I could be wrong about that. I had a white basket with a green gingham top.

I can’t decide whether or not to leave the handle on this bucket to use as a strap or remove and do something else with it. Hope to have some progress pics for you soon.
