So cool! I love those bowls! Amazing colour choices...those would look so lovely just about anywhere in the house.

fusbdgt: my machine wouldn't do it either...BUT you can still make them by tying the rounds together instead of sewing them.

I love the lines that you get from the stitching, but I've been making them by tying them for a few years....either one will work and you get the same bowl shape in the end. Smiley

Beautiful work again!

Wow, I'm starting this right away!

Just so I'm crystal clear, I have to:
-cut strips
-sew strips together
-wrap strips around cord, and meanwhile..
-coil cord and sew

Is that right?

Could those be anymore awesome!  You color choices are phenominal.  I will have to add to the to do list!

Thanks for sharing!


---- forgot to ask, what type of cord?  Cotton blend???

Thank you!  Cheesy  I just used a little bit of every scrap I could find from this huge bag I have... you can see that blue kind of dominates, but I love bright fabrics, so that's mostly what I have.

Also:

...  Anyways, what kinda cording did you use?  I just tried some nylon type rope, I'm thinking that my have contributed, but I haven't gotten around to getting something else and trying again.

I used a 100% cotton cord from JoAnn fabrics.  I found it in the window treatment section... I think it's used for Roman shades and the like, but I thought it would work well for this because it's nicely round instead of braided.  It's 6/32" thick.  29 cents per yard.  Dirt cheap.  Grin

The nylon stuff may work just as well; I haven't tried!  Cheesy

I love these bowls.  It looks hard to make. I read the tutorial...was it really easy?

Very easy.  Time-consuming, absolutely.  But easy.  And fun!  Just make sure to take a break every once in awhile and sit in a comfortable position while you coil, or your back will hurt like mad.  Or maybe that's just because I have a terrible back anyway.

Wow, I'm starting this right away!

Just so I'm crystal clear, I have to:
-cut strips

You got it!  Wink

Very very easy.  And don't worry if the width of your strip varies because you won't be able to tell.  You don't even have to pull out the rotary cutter and mat.  Just use sharp scissors.

crfati dumpster bitch, ThirdMargaret, ammasmama, spotnik, partera, donniesgirl, sew_blue, and photojenn Thank you for the compliments and you're welcome for the link!

I definitely recommend trying them out!  They are easy and fun, and make a nice gift.  Just use a sharp needle on your sewing machine like the tute recommends.

Those look really cool. Now I have to go find some clothesline to try and make one out of all my scraps.
