Whew!! Done!! This set took longer than the other fabric bowls due to the hand sewing needed to finish off the ends. Coil ends on the two bowls. And fabric “blending” on the coasters.
I think these fabrics work well together.
The pictures hardly do this set justice. I did my best to capture what my eyes see.
And this is what I see…..
Larger bowl, smaller bowl (coaster caddy) and 8 coasters. Colors are red, purple and green. Starting at the top of each bowl… Red fabric has tiny white hearts. Purple floral with red, green and white. Bottom fabric is an avocado print.
Again, I put my own spin on making these fabric bowls. I have a hard time “following”. I have to be out front leading the band.
At first I planned to use larger rings for handles (see photo below) but didn’t have enough of the purple and red floral fabric to make a huge bowl like I wanted. (And I ended up not using the solids and lavender tiny print.)
So… going smaller meant different rings. I like how these little 2″ round Marbella rings look. I may make another set like this in a different color combination.
Here are more photos…
Figuring out how to wrap the rings.
Let’s peek inside.
And one last photo.
