What you will need: How to Sew a Flower Bowl
- Pattern you can get by clicking on this link
- 2 Fat quarters of fabric
- 1 12″ x 12″ piece of quilt Batting
- Standard sewing supplies
Step 1: Cut out your Fabrics
Using the free pattern cut two pieces of fabric and one piece of batting on the fold.
Step 2: Add the Batting
Add the batting to the wrong side of one of the fabric pieces by using pins or spray adhesive. I used spray adhesive for my project.
Step 3: Stitch the Darts
Between each petal is a space. Consider those as darts. Pin them together one both the piece with the batting and the piece without the batting and stitch using a 1/4′ seam allowance. This will give the bowls structure. You should have two flower bowls at this point and outer bowl with batting and a lining bowl without.
Step 4: Combine the Two Bowls
Place the lining bowl into the outer bowl so that they are right sides together. Stitch all the way around the top petals using a 1/4″ seam allowance leaving one petal unsewn for turning. Make sure that the dart seams are nested for a nice neat look. Clip carefully around the petals without clipping the seam.
Step 5: Turn Right sides Out
Turn the bowl right sides out through the opening you left in the petal. Pin the petal edges and turn under the open petal edge.
Step 6: Topstitch the Edge of the Flower Bowl
Topstitch the edge of the flower bowl using a 1/8″ seam allowance as you go.
Step 7: Quilt the Flower Bowl
Quilt the flower bowl however you like. I just quilted criss cross lines on mine to secure the batting and the fabric. You have now completed your flower bowl. How fun was that?
