How to Make a Tin Can Caddy

How to utilise an old tin to make a bright and colourful caddy

Empty tins or cans can (pardon the pun) be the Mother of many Sewing Hacks. From sewing to painting there are a zillion!
 
For so many of the Fabric Caddies, Bucket, Storage Bag varieties out there I've always found one general problem no matter what I made them out of. I've used Jeans, Canvas and all kinds of Batting and still I always found it difficult to keep them standing. They would always fall to one side and/or scrunch up. Here is a popular way of still using your fabric and a Tin Can for the frame. 

While messing around with the pattern I've discovered that they can be fun but the price of a Tin Can can be expensive if you are not using the ingredients.  I actually used a can of Iced Tea & my sons Coffee can that were purchased from Costco who have a number of products in large cans at their warehouses, GO Costco!!
 
So my idea is have one Tin Can but make covers that can change with the season, theme, holiday or any room in the house! Not only is this a great idea for your Sewing and Quilting Notions but can also be used in the bathroom for hairbrushes, combs, makeup etc etc. Now there's an idea! Will be posting some pictures of a few I've made.
 

The Pattern can also be Download for FREE on our online store.

Finally but importantly If you enjoy the pattern it we would be grateful if you left a comment in the comments section below. It does help other people find us.
