What are you most proud of? I really like the colour combinations. The true colour of the leaf fabric doesn't show up in the photo though. It's more of a gorgeous aqua blue.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? As I was sewing the bigger bowl i thought it was turning out to be a complete disaster (it seemed a bit wonky and I thought I'd made the base too narrow). I was going to abandon it. I'm glad I stuck with it in the end because it turned out ok. So I guess my advice would be something along those lines...

Very nice....would love to try making something like this someday.

G'day Sarah! What a gorgeous thing!! I had been making hand-painted bags for fundraising, but I'm definitly going to look at that tutorial and have a shot at this!!! Just have to put my crochet aside for a while LOL

Thank you! Hehe, it is a bit like that isn't it - I am constantly getting distracted by new projects so at the moment I have 8 that I go back and forth between :)) The baskets are good, in that you can finish them in a day but they are addictive! As soon as I finish one, I am already thinking about the next! Have fun!

This is gorgeous! I once looked at the instructions for doing one of these and it looked so tedious that I abandoned the idea but, your bowls are beautiful and I may have to revisit the idea of trying some of these.
