Vary the Fabric to Suit the Season!

These charming leaf bowls are quick, easy and a great use of scraps. We can easily imagine them made in spring yellows and lime greens, deeper greens for summer, and an array of fall colored fabrics for display during autumn.

Choose patterned fabrics, solids or even batiks, and embellish with your favorite threads.

The bowls are made with a stiff double-sided fusible interfacing that softens up when heated so you can mold it into a bowl shape. Mold them by hand or around a bowl.

The following video shows you how easy these are to make.


The interfacing used in the video (Inn-Spire) no longer seems to be available. A nearly identical interfacing by Bosal is recommended. It comes in two sizes.

The 9″ x 12″ sheets are great for one leaf. Get them here.

Choose the 20″ x 30″ sheets for more leaves and larger projects. Get that here.

There are three leaves included in the pattern: maple, palm and birch leaf.  The finished bowls are 8-9″ but they can be enlarged.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
