Nesting Bowls Pattern by jenib320

I had the pleasure of testing out a new pattern recently for a friend! Nova of a Cuppa and a Catch Up just released it, the Nesting Fabric Bowls PDF Pattern! This pattern is in-depth! Six different sizes of bowls ready for you to make and lots of fun extra options like patchwork, handles, square bowls, and custom sizing! For lots more information about it and where to buy, see Nova's post here!

I decided to make a full nesting set! I love nesting bowls, so the idea of having nesting fabric bowls was too much to resist! :)  I wanted to work from my stash, so I ended up using all different colorful fabrics that had off-white backgrounds. They coordinate but aren't super matchy! For the interiors I used various colors of Alexander Henry's Heath and Timeless Treasures Sketch!

These bowls have multiple layers of interfacing so they are nice and sturdy but still soft! They come together really quickly, and are a great project to do assembly line style!

Fabrics (left to right): Larkspur by Alexander Henry, Loulouthi by Anna Maria Horner, Hedgehog Meadow by Michael Miller, Washi by Rashida Coleman Hale, Farmdale by Alexander Henry, Umbrellas by Yuwa Fabrics.
