After learning from the mistakes I made while making the first fabric bowl, second time round is a charm and this fabric bowl went together fairly quickly and easily. I’m very happy with the results and it certainly adds a new dimension the usual interpretation of the old “fabric bowl”.
This time instead of stitching directly onto the Peltex, I made some fabric paper and stitched on it to create the texture, then attached it to the Peltex. This made shaping and designing a little easier. And I used some wrapped cording to make the decorative embellishments.
I wrapped some wire around the cording so I could shape it into little balls which act as leg stands.
I enjoyed the process of making this fabric bowl and it was nice diversion from working with images and photoshop and quilts. Although I think I might try another one and this time include some images. Hmmmm, brain ticking over with possibilities.
