Susie Essman chats with Martha about her new animated movie, "Bolt," and shows you how to transform flat pieces of felt into oak-leaf bowls.
- Oak-leaf bowl template
- Card stock
- Wool tweed
- Fusible webbing
- Disappearing-ink pen
- Sewing machine
Download the oak-leaf bowl template, resizing as desired, and print onto card stock. Cut out template.
Cut 3 equal rectangles large enough to accommodate template: 1 from wool tweed, 1 from fusible webbing, and 1 from felt. Stack layers, with webbing in middle. Iron, following webbing manufacturer's instructions.
Lay template on felt side of fused fabric; trace with a disappearing-ink pen. Cut out leaf.
Using a sewing machine, create darts by sewing closed each of the 5 V-shaped notches, using a zigzag stitch and working from inside of notch to edge of leaf (do not overlap fabric; instead, align edges and stitch). Trim any threads or frayed edges.
