The Offering Bowl

Here are some pictures of the bowl I just made for my husband. I had fun with the top. I'm trying to be creative with ending the top, because otherwise there is an ugly bump that just sits there.




I pinned this one all the way around before I sewed it. On the previous bowls I just moved the line around and sewed it "on the fly". I like the little embellishment on the front...the little flower.

Here are some more pictures. I also like the way the colors moved in it. Fun!


I'm using this for my design wall post. If  you'd like to see what others are doing, check out Judy's blog. If you want to see the whole process of dyeing and making these bowls, check out the linked posts.

Oh Mary these are TOO fabulous. I LOVE how you're doing the tops, and the colors are wonderful!

Your bowls are so interesting. I've done the ones that you wrap the fabric around the clothesline. I bet there are those in your guild who would like to learn how to dye their clothesline.

Very creative bowls--would like to try the dying some day as I've already done the "wrapped with fabric strips" kind. Thanks for sharing your talents!

This is beautiful...the colours are yummy and the way you ended with the spiral really adds interest.
