How to Sew a Practical Bucket Bag – Free Sewing Tutorial

by Sue Bleiweiss

How to Sew an Easy Bucket Bag

drawstring wool bucket bag with this free sewing tutorial from Sue Bleiweiss.  This multi-purpose bag is an awesome autumn accessory. The round shape gives this bag a spacious interior, while the patchwork exterior is your canvas for featuring some of your favorite fall fabrics. Sew it up “scrappy” for a casual, bohemian feel, or use a few Kona solids for a more classic look.
