I took a class Saturday on Fabric Bowls. I really had no idea what were were gonna do as there was no sample. YOu basically take cotton clothesline and 3/4" pieces of fabric wrapped and sewn in a spiral. The bowl shapes as you hold the coil up or down at various angles. It was fun. So the cute fabric was no longer visible. There will be gifts made for Christmas using this idea.
I also made a bowl from fabric using a circle where you cut out darts and satin stitch the sides so they come up in bowl shape.
