You need some fabric scraps and interfacing scraps. The best interfacing is the one fusible on both sides. You can use interfacing fusible on one side or even batting. In this case, stitch/quilt the pieces to keep the layers together.
It is easier to prepare a large fabric/interfacing piece then to cut out the smaller pieces. But the technique works fine with scraps too.
The sturdiness/firmness of the bowl depends on how sturdy/firm the interfacing is.
I like to use Fast2Fuse, is fusible on both side and comes in light and heavy weight. The heavyweight stuff works great for big items (toy boxes...). The bowl below is made with single side fusible interfacing- Vilene S520.
Depending on the type of your interfacing, fuse /stitch a piece of interfacing between 2 pieces of fabric.
Then cut out 7 hexagons.
Join the pieces with a close zigzag stitch and be sure you catch both edges. Use the widest
and closest zigzag stitch you can make with your machine. Backstitch at the start and end of each seam.
Backstitch at the start and end of the seam. What you see here is the outside of the box.
Continue stitching the edges together...
