Cute Fabric Bowl

Sometimes I run across something that just strikes my fancy, and I have to try making it.  Such was the case with this cute little gathered fabric bowl.  I found the tutorial on a blog called A Spoonful of Sugar, and you can get the full tutorial HERE.

Lisa and Sarah show their version with fusible web between the layers, but I decided to do a quilted one. So I cut the circles with batting.

I made a quilt sandwich and did a simple grid quilting.

Used the basting stitch as they instruct.

The binding is cut to the exact length, and made into a circle.

The tutorial has the binding stitched to the outside, but I stitched mine to the inside to make it easier to hand whip on the outside.  However, their bowl is reversible with different fabrics inside and out, so you could just turn it inside out to finish.

Cute, isn’t it? Just the right size for those little scissors.

This is the smaller size, great for bobbins.

I’ll be making a few more of these for the sewing room. They would be great for thread catchers too.  Next time I’ll do it their way with the fusible and two prints.

What are you sewing now?

    ADORABLE! I have such cute material to make this with! Very useful and great for a rainy day! Thanks for sharing this!

  2. love the scissor fabric!! Wonder what would happen if you used the soft and stable by Annies or the Bosal In-r – form PLUS (with fusible) or the Pellon FF79F2 Flex-Foam™ 2-Sided Fusible ? Your bowl might stand up a little “taller” with the structure that the foam products provide. Of course, I have those “small pieces” of batting from our off-cuts that I save for these kind of projects too!

    Hi girl! busy moving into new house! we already have plans for the future long arm space, good Lord willin’ etc etc. Will be all moved in weekend of the 30th. My baby quilt still sitting on my machine, one last sashing to finish up and to piece the backing. Painter starting tomorrow on my basement space, doing a sunny lemon yellow to brighten it all up. Cream now, but needs paint, and pale yellow is neutral enough for my burgundy and navy americana stuff…. I will be recovering dining room chairs to suit son and daughter in law who will have the upstairs space, and perhaps curtains, although right now there are good blinds on all the windows that need it, so not urgent. I am going to do a design wall and a project board, because I have a queue of stuff waiting, and need to prioritize! Meanwhile, going through all my craft magazines and looking for a shelter or someplace to donate them. So am I sewing right now? not really, but catch me this time next month!

    That is a cute fabric bowl.
    It would also make an adorable hat for a baby I know 😛
    I am going to do that.
    Thanks Carole. Have a great day

  5. Good Morning Carole! It has been quite awhile since I have made any fabric bowls; but they are always a lot of fun. I adore yours! Plus, you are so right in that there are so many uses for them. They also make great gifts. So thank you for sharing the link for the tutorial, tutes are fun and great to try new ones. I forgot to mention,
    I did make a post about the Scrap Dance Step 4 on my blog the other day, but my link did not work properly. Hubby and I are still trying to learn all the new “kinks”. LOL. I absolutely love the way the first set of blocks are turning out! Deanna and I are seriously discussing the option of making another quilt. For now though, I have a quite a few quilts that have to be finished before any other projects can be started! LOL.
    I hope that you have a fantastic creative day making fabric bowls. I am making a Project Linus quilt today.

  6. I do love that material. I have been away from sewing and into more knitting for quite a while now and this post made me realize how much I missed it. I have a feeling I may be trying something new soon. Thanks for getting me interested again.

  7. I like it, and very adaptable. If it were a little deeper maybe it could be attached to a pincushion for a thread catcher at the sewing machine. Very useful. Thank you for sharing.
