I made 1 nine inch bowl, 3 five inch bowls, and 2 four inch bowls for my owl theme classroom. I also like to think about common objects to help with size, so I took a picture of each size I made with an everyday object. The Pepsi can is near the 4 inch bowl and the Starbucks are next to the five inch bowl.
This is a great stashbusting project too. It doesn't use a lot of fabric for the feature print, while the lining and solid panels do use up more fabric.
This pattern is from acuppaandacatchup.com and is called fabric nesting bowls.

I finished my bag for the secret tote bag swap. I had started cutting it out almost a month ago. Then, I had two surgeries which put me behind schedule. I missread parts of the directions and miscut several pieces. All in all, I know the bag is not perfect, and I like to be a perfectionist, but I decided this bag is pretty (hopefully my partner thinks so too), structually sound (I zig zagged a lot), and can hold lots of stuff. The lining is the part that I dislike the most, and it just isn't as neat as I would have liked it to turn out. I think my favorite part of this bag is the handles. I love how sturdy they feel.
