Turn a Purse into a Padded Camera Bag Do you have a digital camera? Is it a point and shoot? A DSLR? Nested Fabric Buckets Tutorial I didn’t invent the idea of the fabric basket/bucket–nothing like–but I am certainly more than happy to walk you through how I made the ones I’m using in my studio.

So, here they are: a set of three nested fabric buckets to mix-and-match at will. I’m even thinking the littlest size would make a sweet handbag for the spring, don’t you? I’m really digging on the graduated sizes, and still completely in love with the idea that these can be used as dividers, so that the biggest basket isn’t so super huge that there’s a ton of wasted space.
