Another craft today! I love love love this adorable fish bowl matching game from the "Sew You Think You're Crafty" challenge! This was an entry by Celestial Creations for the "scraps only" round, and I pinned it immediately, knowing I would make it. Mine isn't quite as bright and colorful as hers, but I used blue tones on the outside and red/purple tones on the inside, making a reversible fish bowl with eight double-sided lil fishies. The fish store neatly inside the bowl when it isn't being played with.
If you're thinking about making one of these, I would suggest at least one of the following changes:
1) definitely use larger than 1/2" bias tape for the top rim. The instructions say to use 1/2", but I would recommend using 1" to ensure that you can cover all of the layers.
2) Consider just one layer of felt on the inside instead of two.
I think the combination of two layers of felt and the 1/2" bias tape makes for too much bulk and not enough rim coverage. If I make another one (probably will make one for Penny some day), I will probably make both changes.
I ended up covering the rim with felt because my bias tape didn't cover in a couple spots.
I would call this an intermediate project just because it's a little time-consuming, but the difficulty level is not bad at all.
