Thank you! And tailte I forgot to answer your question...I think I originally found a tutorial online and I bet there is one on Craftster! Basically you wrap strips of fabric around lengths of clothesline and zig zag stitch around in circles - until you have the size and shape you want. Also - this might be helpful...all the tutorials say to use 100% cotton clothesline which I can NEVER find. I always use a cotton poly blend and it works FINE! I think they just mean not to use the plastic kind.
Beautiful bowls! I love your colours!!! I love making these too!
I use cotton cording, or in a pinch I have used inch or so wide strips of fleece - I cut strips along the proper edge so they tend to roll, then I get sewing! (my husbands aunt bought the supplies of a small company that made jogging suits, so I have a bunch of this!) A bit more finicky than a cord, but way cheaper!
