Begin by cutting a circle out of the canvas fabric at the size you prefer with the circle cutter. This will be the base of the fabric bucket. I made this bucket with a 1.5″ radius. The radius is the measurement noted on the fabric cutter. Cut a second circle in the same size out of the lining cotton fabric.
Determine the circumference of your fabric circle by placing a pin at one point on the edge of the circle and rolling the circle along a straight tape measure or other ruler. (I’m sure there is also some easy geometry you could do but this cheater method worked great for me!) This measurement will be used to determine the size of fabric needed for the sides of the fabric bucket.
For the 1.5" radius fabric bucket, you will need to cut a rectangle 16" long and 6 3/4" tall. Cut one rectangle out of canvas using these measurements and cut an additional rectangle this size out of cotton lining fabric.
To determine the size if you are making a fabric bucket of a different size, use the following formula: Add 1″ to the circumference measurement and decide how tall you want the fabric bucket to stand. Cut one of canvas and out out of cotton fabric.
Cut 2 additional circles and 2 additional rectangles out of interfacing and adhere the interfacing to their respective fabric counterparts.
Using a 4/8″ seam allowance sew the short side of both rectangular pieces of fabric. You will now have two fabric tubes.
