Making a Fabric Bowl is as easy as ABC and it is a lot of fun. Just follow our step-by-step instructions and within an hour, you will be awarded with your very own Fabric Bowl. Let's get started.
Select your fabric of choice - I picked some beautiful Joel Dewberry Fabric for my Fabric Bowl project.
Used the size of your favorite bowl. Measure the bowl from side to side going underneath the bowl. That will give you the diameter of the circle you need to cut.
Cut two fabric circles , put the two fabric circles left side together and use a thick interfacing that has glue on both side to iron the two fabric circles together.
Now draw a circle in the center of one of your fabric circles. That will be your flat bottom. I used a small bowl to draw my circle - it should be at least 3 inches in diameter.
Now divide the fabric circle into eights. From the outside of the circle, measure 3 inches along the line you have drawn. Draw a triangle as show in the below picture - it is 3 inches long and 1 inch wide on the bottom.
Continue to do so all along the "eights" lines you have previous drawn.
You should end up with 8 triangles.
Now choose a zig zag stitch of your liking and stitch all along the circle in the center of your fabric circle.
Now it is time to zig zag stitch the triangles you have cut.
Start to zig zag stitch from the inner circle. When you get to the triangle, pull the sides of your triangle together and stitch it together with a tight zig zag stitch.
Continue to do so with all the triangles you have cut. Once done, your fabric circles have now taken on the shape of a bowl.
The last step is to zig zag stitch all around the edge of your fabric bow. Voila, you are done with your very own Fabric Bowl.
Have you noticed that the Fabric Bowl is reversible? That is why I choose two different types of fabric.
