Fabric Bowls and Baskets

The last two Thursday evenings I've been in Girdwood with a wonderful group of ladies, learning to make fabric bowls. We did the prep work last week and then made the actual bowl last night. The method we learned is similar to this pattern, I believe. Here's the bowl I completed yesterday.

In the meantime however, I Googled around and found this tutorial demonstrating a slightly different technique. Using this method, the edges of the fabric fray slightly, and I loved the look right away for my purposes--an Easter basket. I *LOVE* how it turned out! I used buttons from Gma Paul's stash to adorn the handles. Now I just have to whip up one more before Sunday!
