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???
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.
... 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.
The nylon stuff may work just as well; I haven't tried!
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:
-sew strips together
-wrap strips around cord, and meanwhile..
-coil cord and sew
Is that right?
You got it!
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.
