Hi, I'm new here and I must say I've been very inspired by reading what everyone else has done!  I wanted to share a picture of the fabric bowl I made last night.  It was a lot of fun, and I can't wait to make some more.  It was kind of hard to get a good picture of it, but you get the idea!

That is really cool! I wish I had one!  The fabric is also very nice.

ooh! that's fun! I've seen something similar at my mum's house but instead of being sewed together it had little ribbons attached to 'the sides' so you could tie them together and thus holding them up. I much prefer yours, it's more sculptural in a way! tute please..?  Smiley

i was thinking the same thing!  I have one that the sides tie and it was called a bun warmer cuz the bottom had a slit to put a heated tile in.  I really like this one better!  very clever Smiley

i have this book and have tried this and mine certainly did not turn out like that  Huh it came out soooo awesome. how did you get the stitching so even ? and what type of thread did you use ? i was going to make some for the consignment shop i have my stuff in and got frustrated and have not attempted another one. i think it looks beautiful, well done.
i am also from mass - near the south shore , kind of - what about you , what part of the state do you live in ?

Thanks everyone for the kind compliments...I got the instructions for the bowl from a book called "Fast, Fun & Easy Fabric Bowls" by Linda Johansen.  Being new here I not quite sure of the rules for posting tutorials from bought patterns??  Basically you fuse a piece of fabric to both sides of a Timtex square (a kind of thick interfacing/stabilizer they use for baseball hat brims).  I did mine a 9" square.  Then you fuse a smaller square (mine was 3") on both sides in the middle and zig-zag around it.  Then you cut darts starting 1/8" from the point of each middle square to the edge, mine ended up going out to 1 1/2" at the base (the edge of the bowl).  Then you zig-zag the darts closed and zig-zag around the edge.  I zig-zag'd twice, once narrow and then with a wider stitch.  The trick is to use a very tight zig-zag to get that satin stith look (and to go really slow so it doesn't pucker)  I used just regular cotton thread - Coats & Clark I think. 

Sorry if those directions don't make much sense.  The book spelled it out very well and had great pictures!

Oh, sewoz - I'm from Springfield.
