I just finished making two fabric art bowls using Pellon double sided Peltex. I have now made 6 fabric bowls. If you would like more information about the other fabric bowls, check out a previous post – 12/4/2015: 3-D art quilt fabric bowl. The bowls are fun to make using fabric scraps from your stash and fusible web. The tricky part is to design the circle quilt while it is flat and then make 5 cuts to create the sides of the bowl. You have to plan ahead to mark your fabric cuts so that you don’t cut the parts of your design that are important. In the Sea Life bowl I wanted to make sure that I didn’t cut through the turtles but I didn’t really care about the coral or orange fish. Oops! A fish lost half of its body in the construction. I still need to add some eyes to the fish and turtles using a fabric marker. So much fun.
I decided to make another more abstract landscape bowl. I cut wedges of fabric to use for the background – sky, water, and woods. Then I added trees and grasses. I really like this art bowl.
Keep having fun sewing and quilting. Donna
