This Pattern Can be Adapted for Any Season!

We’ve seen boxes, baskets and other containers made of fabric, but this is the first time we’ve seen a pail. What a great idea!

This darling little snowman container can be used for so many things. Fill it with a plastic bag of candy or baked goods for holiday giving. Tuck in a little gift with decorative tissue paper peeking out of the top. Use it for storing small sewing supplies. With a bit of imagination you’re sure to find many uses for this fabric pail.

Snowman Pail

The basic container is very easy to sew together and highly adaptable. Embellish it with raw edge applique, or finish the edges with a zig zag or blanket stitch if your prefer.

The snowman is adorable, but with a little ingenuity you could substitute other applique motifs. A bunny for spring, an apple for autumn, a floral design for all year around, balloons for a birthday … well, you get the idea.

If applique isn’t your thing, you could skip it entirely and use a couple of favorite fabrics for the container. It would be a simpler look but just as charming. You could even sew together a bit of patchwork for the container’s body, giving it a totally different look.

The “Snowman Pail” from Sweetwater Scrapbook is 8″ tall and 5 1/2″ in diameter.
