This project combines two of my favorite things: fabric scraps and baskets.
This is the Nesting Fabric Bowls pattern from A Cuppa and a Catch Up. I already had a similar pattern, used to make baskets here. But this pattern includes a lot more options and fun details. I love that it has a chart to allow you to create a bowl using any dimensions you pick. And rather than using batting, which makes a rather floppy bowl, this pattern uses fusible fleece. Which is some pretty fantastic stuff.
This is the 6-inch bowl and I love the construction methods. I was able to follow everything as written except that I don’t have a walking foot for my machine. I haven’t actually used one before, but I’m guessing that it might take care of the wiggles and wobbles that happened during my topstitching.
Es is already having fun trying these out:
I’m hoping to get a few more of these and another of Noodlehead’s divided baskets made before the baby arrives. We’ll see!
