I thought it would be fun to share some Fabriflair™ tips and techniques while making a Fabriflair Brio Bowl in Kyoto, my new fabric line from RJR Fabrics! Notice how I used one print for the exterior, Butterflies in the Tranquil colorway- and fussy cut a bit to show the butterfly line art. The interior of the bowl is also fussy cut with the Camellia print in Sky.

We offer the Fabriflair™ kits with perfectly cut templates or if you choose to cut your own we offer PDFs of all the patterns as well!

Also check out the fun Hummingbird Needle Threader from Dritz! I love this little tool!

This video shows the first steps stitching the Brio pieces together for the exterior of the bowl. The templates are first covered in fabric, sandwiching in a piece of batting, before wrapping the fabric and gluing to the rough side of the mat board template. I like to use batting for my Fabriflair projects, but it isn't required and will look good either way. I find it makes them a little easier to sew.

This is the next step, stitching up the sides.

The exterior is ready to place the interior into position.

and the last step is stitching around the perimeter of the bowl!


And now it's ready to display my favorite vintage buttons! Or maybe a few spools of my Sulky Crossroads Thread! Or maybe my Sewing Clips!* Hmm... It looks like I need to stitch up a few more of these!

Also, we are introducing our new line of Fabriflair Patterns, Templates and Stabilizer. We have a new method of Fabriflair that uses our one-side fusible Fabriflair Medium Weight Stabilizer. The Faceted Sphere and Bowl Pattern includes both the large brio sphere and an extra-large size, measuring 7" finished.

Hi Rose,

That’s a great idea of how to cherish your grandmother’s vintage fabric! Share photos with us when you’re finished. We would love to share them.

These look like so much fun! I think my favorite are the Christmas ornaments. I have my grandmother’s vintage aprons and (since they just sit in a drawer) I’m thinking about making ornaments using those fabrics and giving them to my siblings for Christmas gifts. A way to have a bit of our grandmother on our trees every year.

Is it possible to purchase refill templates for the large radiant star, or do I purchase another kit? I have made one and would like to make another.

I made a FabriFlair bowl this weekend and put extra padding on the bottom so I can keep pins and sewing notions in it. :)
