A bit of weather news for my blog friends in the northern hemisphere it was 37.8 degrees C here in Adelaide yesterday.
I have been making bowls this week. I saw one on a blog a few weeks ago and thought they looked interesting. I wish I could remember which blog I saw them on but when I tried to get back there I had wandered too far and couldn't retrace my steps. I hate it when I can not give recognition to someone who has inspired me. Pat from Bit & Pieces has just jogged my memory with her comment - this is where I first saw fabric bowls thanks Pat.
This was my first attempt when I bought the material I had imagined it to turn out more blue than it did. I took me about 2 hours from start to finish.
This was my second attempt and I did well with the fabric as it turned out blue, I couldn't really go wrong it was basically blue fabric. I made this as a gift for a friend. I even managed to make them different shapes.
I stitched a label for the bottom.
This is the book they come from I bought it from here. I find it amazing that in Australia I can buy a book from Amazon for less than I would pay here order it and get it in about 5 days. Post from one side of Australia to the other takes longer than that. I did ring a few local shops and they said they would have to order it and it would take 6 weeks.
