The instructions on how to make this bowl comes from the Contain It! English Paper-Pieced Accessories book by my blog friend Laura Chaney (Gerth) and her mother Linda Chaney. They blog over at Prairie Sewn Studios.
I love the bowls and vases and containers in the book. I should try making another shape and size that I haven't already made. I participated in their blog hop last year where I made several containers and you can go here to see what I made in case you forgot or are a new follower or are just visiting today. There are so many possibilities of great containers to make in their book.
Here is my latest scalloped bowl with the pentagon base:
|I chose a floral and paisley fabric for the exterior of this bowl.|
|Each side is a bit different from how the fabric was cut.|
|The inside is a pink with lime green dots.|
|You can see the pentagon base and all 5 interior sides in this view.|
