BFC1725 A Touch of Steampunk Fabric Bowl
I named this a Touch of Steampunk because it has other elements like music and foliage. By using different fabrics and colors it will go well in any decor.
The designs are done with bobbins matching your top thread so you have double sided bowl sides. Very quick stitching even with the changing of bobbins. There is also a method described that has a plain fabric side eliminating the need for the colored bobbins. I use Silk Dupioni striped fabric that had large red and green strips. I used one color stripe for each side of the design. Full instructions included. You can also use this to make just a plan fabric bowl with a pretty fabric - no design in the middle, or use the designs for other projects by eliminating the borders. Lots of options!

I really love these designs and I want to make the bowl, but I realized that part of the attraction to the bowl is the fabric you put under the designs. I looked for something similar, but have been unable to find it. So that would mean using a different fabric and thus different thread colors. Any suggestions?Apr 10, 2018, 12:10 PM
HI Roberta, I searched for Plaid Silk Dupioni and found lots - especially on Etsy! I've sent you the links because i can't post live links here.

What did you use to make the sides of the bowl stiff?Apr 3, 2018, 09:59 AM
Hi Roberta - nothing unusual! I used two layers of tear away stabilizer, two layers of silk fabric (top and back of design and one layer of thin batting. They really stand up great! I think the shape of the sides helps too - more satin stitching with the ups and downs on the top. I jsut gave it a light pressing after stitching together.
Thanks - Suz
