noteworthy fabric bowls
Finally, I tried out this great pattern by Nova! I got a fat quarter bundle of Noteworthy by Sweetwater for Christmas and I'm having a lot of fun planning all kinds of little projects with the fabrics! I really like the collection a lot, there are a lot of great basics and blenders and I like the scribbly and fun nature of the prints.
Fat quarters are big enough for at least the 3 smallest sizes in the pattern and I had fun mixing and matching the fabrics for the exteriour and lining.
The smallest bowl is using this pretty bird fabric with a subtle dot print as the lining.
For the next size I chose the grey bucket list print and picked out the orange accents with the lining.
Maybe it's still a bit early to say, but I think this scribbly flower print is my favourite of the whole collection. There are tiny green dots, so again I picked a green lining to highlight those accents.
The bowls were really easy and fun to make. I made them assembly-line style and they came together really quickly. The part taking the longest was attaching the interfacings to the fabric.
Next I want to try the feature panel version of the bowls! The perfect way to use up the scraps from the ones I made so far, I think!
