    These are really fun to make. I try to wrap them up on the cording when I can't think of anything to do. When I do feel like making them, they whip up really quick.

    Your bowls are very nice! I made a fabric bowl for my sister for Christmas one year. She asked me what she was supposed to do with it. I've never seen it anywhere in her home.

    Heather, if you really like making the bowls, you may also enjoy some of the fabric boxes, flip flops and things made by Auntie's Two has. www.auntiestwo.com

    At first, I didn't know what to do with mine. I made some for my kids and they put their jewelry in them. I have a couple in my craft room that are filled with pieces of fabrics for a project. I made one for my boyfriend to put his work glasses in(so they don't get left all over the house). So there are lots of ways to use them.

    I hope you like her patterns....you may even like some of the bags with the clothesline or the bath mat...I personally like the Nested Boxes. (If you make them taller, you can place a vase in them.) ...after all, as quilters don't we need more quilted/fabric items around the house?!? lol

    Your bowls are gorgous. May I ask how you secure the fabric when you wrap the cording ahead of time. Do you use glue and if so what kind of glue.

    Thanks.

    You can use close pins or tacky glue(that's my favorite to use). My mom was using elmers glue. Both of them are easy to sew through. I haven't tried any other glues yet.

    Thanks so much for letting me know how to wrap the cord ahead of time (with glue and clothes pins!) This will be a great project whle watching TV. Then I can do a lot of the sewing all at once.

    Can you only purchase the patterns from a quilt shop?

    Very nice job, Heather! I would have never thought about making a hot pad so I will have to try this. Thank you for the idea! :)

    You don't need a pattern. Go on youtube and search for fabric bowls....you can watch videos on how to do it. It's easy to have you watch someone than try to explain how to do it.
