Voila!  Look at that!  It’s an elegant/rustic/modern/awesome leather bowl.  Don’t you just want to make one right this minute?  I do!  Alicia from Dismount Creative has all the deets on how to transform a bag of miscellaneous leather scraps into a beautiful bowl — check out her post for a supply list and instructions!

Meanwhile, I think this is a great jumping off point for creating bowls from other materials: felt, heavy card stock, wood veneer… you name it!  What material would you use?

(Also, check out this similar and equally fabulous no-sew felt basket!  I’d love to try that with leather!)
