This is a tutorial-based pattern by Giuseppe Ribaudo for Bernina - from We All Sew:

I don’t know about you, but as soon as summer hits I am outside as often as possible. The moment it is warm out, I call a friend, grab a bag, and am off on a new adventure. I have wanted to make a bucket bag for such a long time. They are trendy, but also so functional. I could never find a pattern for one that was quite what I liked, though. So I thought I would try my hand at making my own.

There are fewer things in this world that I love more than flying geese and summer. So it was only natural that when the warm weather was finally here I would make a bucket bag combining both. I knew right away where I would draw my inspiration from: summer sunsets. What on earth is more beautiful that the calming swirl of a pink, orange, and purple sunset?

The thing that I love most about this project is it is so versatile. I have provided the framework for this flying geese rendition, but the possibilities are endless. You could turn an orphan block into a panel for it, do it in one solid material… So many options.
