alwaysinmyroom showed some of us mods how to make these great bowls in person. I love making them because the process is very relaxing and easy.

This round of bowls are for friends we are going to visit, and to put goodies in for them.
#1 is off white, cream and burgundy with a button.


This one is square! Was proud of myself for getting this to work.




White, silver and black. Inset shows detail, sort of.


This originally ugly fabric made a fun bowl.


This is similar to one I made before. Love the color combo.


If you want to find more fabric bowls here on Craftster, and even the tutorial check these posts:
1, 2, 3 , 4 ,5

Sure there are more but these give the idea. Smiley

Oh, these are so much fun!  I love your color choices and your choice of embellishments.  I was lucky enough to receive one of alwaysinmyroom's bowls in a swap and fell in love!  I took a quick class to learn how to make them at our local quilt shop and found them to be fun and relaxing!

Yours are very lovely!
I like the embelishments you added to the bowls.

This has been on my list for ages, I should try and make me some fabric bowls...

Thanks for sharing!

The square is very impressive. I also love how you guys do the little rosette using the end of the line. I still haven't gotten comfortable enough to try hand stitching on my own bowls yet. I guess it's something I need to get over some day, eh? Yours are amazing and inspiring. Thank you for sharing!

I showed my mom your embellished bowls and now she is asking why I haven't made her any...I have a few bolts of "ugly" fabric that will make lovely bowls...

glasskicker...did they teach interesting ways to finish off the bowls?  I am really loving the coiled rosettes but was wondering about other ways to do it...

the button flower is a way I have never seen, HSG! Cool!

Thanks all! The square one took me awhile to figure, but I will for sure be doing the shape again. Smiley

Do you have any tips for the square for when I realize I need to make a batch of bowls again?

Had to keep the bottom stitching more oval. When I started to do the sides was when I started the square shape. As you go up keep shaping the corners. Does that make sense? Undecided
