Looking for patterns for felted bowls.
I'm guessing an isoceles triangle, a shallow one. Seam it up along the two equal sides and you should be able to mold it nicely over a bowl as it dries. Decorative stitching would be a breeze to work in.
Knit Picks has a pattern on their web site using their sock yarn. I also saw one in the book One Skein: 30 Quick Projects.
Not sure how big you want the bowls, but there's a pattern on Knitty for some small felted bowls for a Mancala game. Check it out here.
Here's a link to a recently published pattern:
Welland, Ontario, Canada
Noble Yarns has a pattern P532 Felted Vases $5 for the pattern & $5 shipping

Spin-Off magazine (summer 2003) had an article on doing felted bowls out of unspun roving, but you can use several yarns that will felt. Also, check these:

Or just do a pillbox shaped hat or any beanie hat, and felt it!
