– Empty Plastic Tub with lid – William Morris Fabric Remnant – Leftover fabric piping – Leftover quilt batting – Fabric scraps and trimmings from my thread catcher bin. – Craft Glue
Above is the tub I started with. It was a 5kg container of Epsom Salts.
I removed the handle first of all just by popping it out of the slots it was attached by. I might use the handle for another project in due course!
I give my large plastic tub a bit more of a padded look by attaching some leftover strips of quilt batting to the outside of it.
To attach them I used some regular craft glue on the outside of the tub, around the sides and on the lid, and pressed the batting down firmly.
I attached the batting on the lid and the batting on the sides in separate steps rather than all at once as I hadn’t filled my tub up yet.
I used 3 or 4 layers of this leftover batting.
