I have always loved beautiful fabric and interesting shapes. For the last several years I have been creating original design purses, scarves, and fabric bowls using fabric that is fun as well as functional. This has allowed me to combine my passion for sewing with an appreciation of artistic influences from around the world. My most recent venture has been repurposing vintage crochet pieces and antique handkerchiefs or well-loved jeans or t-shirts into individually designed bowls, baskets, or mirrors. Born in New Jersey, I worked for several international companies in the New York area, traveling extensively in Latin America. In 1988 my husband and I moved to Pittsburgh where we raised two daughters, and I volunteered in the Pittsburgh Public Schools.View all patterns by designer (17) »
Get started on your summer decorating and gift-making! This pdf format pattern is for a set of 3 original design fabric bowls. This set of 3 bowls fits into a fat quarter (18" x 21" piece of fabric). Two contrasting pieces of fabric are used which make the bowls reversible. Other materials required are very heavy interfacing and embroidery thread.
These unusual butterfly-shaped fabric bowls are a perfect gift or decorating accent for your home. They are ideal for holding breads or rolls, snacks, candy, or filled with scented goodies. They also make great gifts, either by themselves or filled with cookies, tea and coffee, etc.
They are fun to make, and can be embellished with decorative stitching, trim, beads, etc.,--whatever you like to add as your own special touch.
The pattern contains complete written instructions with photographs as well as actual size pattern pieces.
