Fabulous Folded Bags or InstaBowls!

bowl one and two





Here’s a fun project to try.  The Fabulous Folded Bags is one of the patterns I purchased at the recent AQS show in Des Moines.

Fab Folded Bowls







folded outsideOf course, I don’t follow the pattern and I’m renaming them, “InstaBowls”!



First, I changed the construction to the pillow case method similar to my dish mats and then I folded them differently.  Instead of folding the flaps to the inside, which I felt was too bulky, I left the corners on the outside.

If you fold the flaps out, the bottom looks like a petal!


inside four patch






The inside of the bag has a four patch design, too.


This a great project for sacrificing a couple of fat quarters and batting remnants.  If you have some large batting samples, they are perfect for this.  The hard part is deciding which fat quarters to use!

My InstaBowl will be in my project bag for small group sewing days.  Instant scrap bin!  What will you use yours for?

It’s little but it’s a finish!

I’m joining the October finishes linky party at Such a Sew and Sew: A Stitch in Time.
