Turquoise Bowl

Wrapped Fabric Bowl

This week I learned how to make fabric bowls, so I decided to take the few aqua/turquoise scraps that I had left, cut them into strips and make a bowl.

Inside the bowl

I bought the book It’s a Wrap II  by Susan Breier and some clothesline over a year ago, and this week my friend Terry gave me a lesson, so much faster than reading.  I still have the book for all the ideas of bowls and shapes that I can make, however it’s nice to finally use my clothesline and learn this new skill.  This is a fast and relatively easy project and another way to use up fabric scraps and perhaps have a pretty bowl to match a quilt.

Saturday is the day to post pictures of our Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects, so visit soscrappy to see what others have done with the colour turquoise.

Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere.
