Fiesta Bowl Time

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.

    I can’t seem to figure out how you attached those handles. Has me puzzled.

      It was easy. After I figured out how I wanted to attach them. Look at the 2nd photo from the top. See how I wrapped around the ring? Then I machine sewed around to the spot to begin adding the second ring. Looped around 2nd ring. Cut coil. Restarted coil by wrapping other side of 2nd ring. Machine stitched around to the front. Back where I started. Final wrapping, the left side of the 1st ring.

      Now, do you see how I did it? 😀

    Okay, I think I have it now. One of these days I may do one of these. Right now I’ve got to get started on that knitted wedding cake so I’ll have it done for the Fair. I don’t think it will be difficult, but somewhat time consumming with all the small parts to knit.

    This is so cool! I’ve been looking for directions for these for a while. Can’t wait to try it. I have lots of strips cut for quilting, so I just need to get some cording or clothes line. Thanks!
