Pattern Description:

I love a good storage solution and these fabrics bowls are ideal for lots of storage jobs around the home including fabric storage of course!

Make a coordinating set for some storage in your bedroom or lounge, whip up some small ones for little trinkets & treasures on the dressing table or bedside table, or a larger size with handles for the playroom. Use one for a trash can on the cutting table or a small one as a thread catcher for your travel sewing kit, wow your guests at dinner with a fancy homemade bread basket or gift some homemade goodies in one. The possibilities are endless.

Inside the pattern are lots of idea for customising your bowls by adding a feature panel, handles, pockets & straight edges PLUS the simple to use formula to make your own size.

Aimed at beginners & beyond, it's a small project that you can really put your stamp on.

For beginners it's a fun little project that you can experiment & play with as your skills and confidence grows, it's also a great project to practice your quilting on without the overwhelming size of a larger quilting project.

For confident sewists, the maths has all been done for you, so you can just play play play!

This is a 35 page PDF pattern which includes step by step instructions with colour photos.

I have always been a bit crafty - cutting and gluing since I can remember. My real passion for sewing was sparked about 12 years ago after emigrating to Australia from the UK and buying my very own sewing machine.
