I like the idea of a fabric bowl. Not only is it practical, when it needs to be cleaned, just toss it in the wash. When it is not being used, this will take up a lot less space than a traditional bowl as it can lie flat. Genius.

Rustic fabric bowls look so charming on a table, especially for autumn times. The tutorial has a free template to download however to make one larger or smaller, the pictorial instructions are a great help. Changing the fabric to coincide with the seasons would make this project very versatile. Great gift idea too.

A fabric bowl! That means when not in use this can be folded and placed neatly away in a drawer. I think this is a fantastic idea. This idea can also be expanded and used in other applications like around small planters and change them seasonally. The applications are endless.

I've made fabric bowls before with a two different methods but I really like this one with the burlap as it looks quite sturdy. I have not sewn with burlap before though. Are there any special things to consider like the needle size or stitch length? I'm looking forward to trying this pattern out!

this is such a neat idea. I have never seen a fabric bowl before. This would make some nice gifts especially for those spring or summer picnics. I love that the outside is made from burlap to make it strong. Make some in different sizes and take to a church get together and watch the look on peoples faces when you use these fabric bowls. They will be asking for some for themselves. Such a simple,easy and fun tutorial. How many have made some of these bowls?

I just adore fabric bowls and baskets and can think of a hundred things I could use this bowl for! Its such an interesting design and the use of the burlap on the outside gives it a rustic look which is very appealing. I also love that the pattern is so simple that one can make it in any size you like so its definitely a must-do for me and a great way to use up some of the huge collections of fabric leftovers and offcuts I accumulate!

Oh, this looks adorable and easy enough for my novice sewing abilities. Of, course, I'd have to have my fianc help me with the accurate measuring steps since I'm not great with specifics. LOL. Seriously, though, this would look so cute on a rustic themed buffet table filled with bread or rolls. I have plenty of burlap and fabric laying around for practice. Thanks for sharing!
