Here's some sneak peaks of the tutorial for this week! I think you're going to like it!
For my birthday one of my super crafty friends Emily gave me some coveted fabric fortune cookies, straight out of her new Etsy shop, Momma's Apron Strings. I knew that not just any container could hold these great little cookies so I looked around trying to find a great fabric bowl to make. I found a few patterns, but none were what I was looking for, so I created my own!
Don't you just love the slightly curved top? I can't wait to make more! I'm thinking they can hold cotton balls in the bathroom, knick knacks in the laundry room, spare bits of craft parts, keys by the front door, it's endless! And, they don't take much time at all to make. Once I got the pattern worked out it took me about an hour to make 3 of them!
I'm still typing up and editing the photos for the tutorial. I'm somewhat of a detail oriented person so I wanted to make sure everything was just right and won't have it ready tonight, but tomorrow night for sure!
I'm also going to try something a little different. Due to the time (20+ hours) and materials (Lots of fabric and interfacing) I went through, trying to get this pattern just right I will be offering this one for sale at a small cost. The cost will only be $3 for the pattern. It will include detailed instructions with pictures (because pictures ALWAYS help!), full size pattern, and a few different variations. I hope it won't keep you from making them. It will be available tomorrow night in my shop as a PDF download. I'll post here when it's up in the store!
And how about this:
Leave me a comment at the bottom of this post and let me know what you think about the bowls and I'll randomly pick a comment Saturday and the winner gets a FREE pattern sent to them! (If the winner has already purchased the pattern by Saturday because they just couldn't wait to make some I'll refund you the purchase price.)
