Solaris isn't your average six-pointed star dish – it's something special. This piece has been crafted with a unique design where the points of the star seem to float gracefully above the surface it rests on. But don't worry, even though it has this airy look, the dish maintains its stability perfectly. The secret lies in the spacious hexagon base. It's like a strong foundation that keeps the dish steady while also giving you a chance to play with your fabric choices. You see, with that extra space, you can pick larger printed fabrics and carefully select which parts of the pattern you want to showcase, creating a design that's tailored to your taste.

Solaris is not just a pretty face – it's functional too. You can use it to corral your runaway spools of thread if you're into sewing. No more chasing them around the table!
And hey, it's a fantastic spot for your keys and spare change. Just drop them in, and they've got a stylish home instead of being scattered all over. Plus, imagine having this beautiful bowl as the designated spot for your jewelry when you're done wearing it for the day. It's like a fancy little resting place for your favorite pieces.

So, whether you're a crafting enthusiast, a person who's always looking for their keys, or someone who loves having a dedicated spot for their bling, this star bowl has got you covered – and it's going to look stunning doing it!

Welcome to Cake & Ale! Our mission is all about combining the charm of traditional quilting with a fresh, modern twist. We're here to bring you patterns that you can lovingly handcraft using techniques passed down through generations. But guess what? You don't need to dedicate weeks to these projects – you can finish them up in just one weekend!

Now, if you're new to the world of hand sewing, don't worry. We've got your back. We're all about something called English Paper Piecing (EPP). This technique involves wrapping fabric around paper templates, kind of like creating a snug little fabric hug around them. This gives you the foundation to create these seriously intricate and spot-on shapes.

Once you've got these fabric-covered templates, it's like putting together a puzzle. You stitch them up, piece by piece, to form a work of art that looks like you spent ages on it. It's like magic, but with needle and thread.

So, whether you're a seasoned stitcher or just dipping your toes into the world of hand sewing, we're here to provide you with patterns that marry tradition and innovation. Get ready to create pieces that will leave everyone thinking you're a crafting rockstar – all in the span of a weekend!

*** FAQ's ***

Do you I need a laminator?
No you don't, this is just a technique you can use if your printer does not like printing on card stock (like mine).

What weight card stock is best?
If you can print on card we recommend that a stock 220GSM - 300GSM be used, it needs enough bulk to hold the sides up but you also need to work within your own comfort zone.

Do I really leave the papers in?
YES!! Unlike traditional EPP our card stock templates stay in permanently. This is what creates, and holds the structure of our unique patterns together.
