Nova's latest pattern is Nesting Fabric Bowls. I don't know about you but I can always use more storage around the house, and these bowls are so versatile the possibilities are pretty much endless!

I made two individual baskets rather then a set because I wanted to experiment with the pattern a bit.
With Easter just around the corner I wanted something cute for egg hunting.
This is the 6" basket embellished with a raw edge applique bunny. I added one long handle so it can be hung from one arm when searching for all the Easter eggs in the garden.
What I found especially helpful was the formula Nova provides for calculating the measurements of your own custom sized container. I am pretty lazy when it comes to maths so any help I can get in that department I'll gladly take :)
My next bowl is made with custom measurements. I used some small patchwork blocks I made with Ayumi's Scrappy Hour Glass tutorial for this one.
The pattern suggests using interfacing which I didn't have on hand. So rather than wait and order some I used fusible batting instead. This makes for a little less firm bowl but mine still hold shape and stand up on their own.
I still want to make an actual nesting set and a teeny tiny small basket ooooh the possibilities! They'd make great gifts don't you think?
