Procrastination Project of the Week: Quilted Fabric Bowl
This is the fabric basket from my recent Free Pattern Friday post. It is reversible. The only issue I had was when I zig-zagged the edges some of the batting was poking through. Not sure how to solve that quite yet.
Note to self: Make sure to test a chalk pencil before actually using it to draw lines. The Dritz Dressmakers mechanical pencil worked great until you tried to wipe the chalk off the fabric after stitching on top of it. Not happy! At least it was on this and not on a quilt or something. My quest to find a good quilting pencil continues.
Cutting out all the layers took a good amount of time as did the quilting. Still, you can accomplish this in an evening without a problem. This is great for a gift or a way to display fussy-cut fabrics in your sewing room. I recommend it!
It is a great way to practice some quilting techniques but I didn’t like quilting through the heavy-weight interfacing. They just don’t show up as well in the end.
Thanks to everyone for your kind comments on my Sunbonnet Sue gift!
