Now is the time to start making Christmas gifts at a leisurely pace. No stress here!
Note: ALL ELEMENTS MUST BE 100% COTTON for this project or YOUR BOWL WILL CATCH ON FIRE IN THE MICROWAVE!!!
Trim the outer portion of the curve to 1/4", to have less bulk.
You now have the two halves of your bowl!
Put them together with right sides facing and batting on the outside.
Line up the corners and the curves you just sewed. Before you pin the curves together, flip one to the right and one to the left so that they nest together.
You should have no less than 8 pins holding your bowl together.
On one side, between the corner and one curve (dart), mark a 2 inch space where you will not sew. I usually just put two pins together at the beginning and the end of the space. I know that I will not sew past 2 pins together.Do whatever works for you!
Once this is done, sew all around the edge (leaving that 2 inch space open!)
Trim the corners.
Now turn it right side out!
Push the corners out using a chop stick or some blunt tool
Go ahead and give the whole thing a good press.
Sew 1/4" from the edge all the way around
Your bowl is now done!!
