This week i tackled #7 on my FAL list, the set of ROYGBIV nesting bowls i had been wanting to make with the left over canvas i had from my boys curtains. Though i guess i should really call them ROYGBV bowls. I went straight from blue to violet, sorry indigo you didn't make the cut!
I love the contrast of the black and white exterior and the rainbow interior.
I opted to use the canvas for the lining as well and just add a band of the pearl bracelets for the pop of colour. The double layer of canvas gives the bowls some structure as i chose not to use interfacing. That being said i think the two largest size bowls could use a bit more stability. They stand fine on their own but they are a tad slumpy. But when stuffed with toys they're perfect!
And look how awesome they look all stacked together!
Again, i used Nova's Nesting Bowl Pattern for these and there will be more in my future! Really people, how cool would these be in a little kids room!
|don't worry, i only made 6 bowls, i just photoshopped them all together to show them in use!|
In the shop!
Now for the drum roll please!!!!
Wait... what's that?
That's right i'm now the proud owner of four fabulous Dowry pillowcases!
And you'd think with all that fanfare I'd just made the worlds first pillowcase. But really, you know you want them :)
Just look at that detail! Go on say it, i'm awesome. Feel free to spread the word. Too far? Seriously though peeps, you have to make yourself some of these. It's perfect for those fabrics that are so pretty you don't want to cut them up, now you can sleep on them! And it's been proven that you'll have better dreams... okay i made that up, but how could you not?! They are super fast and super easy! (link for the tutorial in this post) And look how amazing they look with my star dresden pillow, tutorial for that here ;)
These pillow cases were #11 on my FAL list, but i did also have some AMH velveteen to go with them. I had planned on using it for pillow shams but it is currently tacked up in our bedroom window thinking that it may want to be curtains instead! We'll see!
Now to get started on the quilt! Well, i guess not quite yet, Sammy's first, then Max's then mine!
High fives for awesome pillowcases!
