Now that the market is over I am needing to gear up for the fall and Christmas shows. YIKES! I did have a chance to take a class from my local quilt shop which I haven't done in years. I learned how to make one of these fabric bowls. :)
I think they are so nice. You can use all kinds of fabrics and colors. I have all these ideas of colors going through my head now. I thought I would start with fall colors. I just love fall and all the colors. I just can't get enough of them.
This will be the bottom of the bowl.
Then I needed to make the cord that are the sides of the bowl. This can be a little time consuming, but once I got the hang of it it went pretty good.
Had to get a new foot for my machine. It is called a "beading" foot. I didn't even know there was such a thing. It works pretty slick in pulling the fabric and clothes line together to make the cording.
Then you have to sew the cording to the base of the basket so you have to go around and around and around and around some more! Whew....tires your little hand out. :)
After you have sewn all the cording to the base and ended off the cording you are done. Whalla.......a fabric bowl!
The whole process takes some time, but the end product I think is great. Hmmmmm.......looks like some Christmas presents making are in my future. And all those Christmas shows I need to do...yep....bowl making here we come. :) This bowl is actually going to be available on my Old Farmhouse Gathering Team Harvest Happenings Celebration next week, but I will let you know about that in a few days. :)
Well off to the sewing room....working on some more fall goodies and I am actually finishing up a UFO that I have had for years! Look like it will turn out ok...I will show you when I am done.
Have a great day!
