Just a quick post to share a fun idea. Our local food bank holds an annual event called the Empty Bowls Fundraiser. Many talented artists in the area donate work and some friends and I wanted to join in the fun. As few of us work in ceramics, glass or wood, we decided to focus on what we know and make some fabric bowls.
We simply sewed scraps onto heavy interfacing in a mosaic fashion. There are all sorts of tutorials available and they were really fun to make.
You can even add other embellishments like beading and metallic threads.
In all, I think we made about 15 bowls. Each has its own personality and beauty.
I highly recommend trying this great idea if you have a similar fundraiser in your area.
