After seing Linda Permann's excellent tutorial I kind of got obsessed by making these fabric bowls.  Cheesy Please tell me what you think of them!

Here is the tutorial that inspired me: http://www.craftstylish.com/item/33825/how-to-sew-a-fabric-bowl

Fab! I love coiled fabric bowls, but have yet to attempt one.
That first orange one is my fave.

Boldly going where others have probably been.

These are great, I love how colorful they are!  I actually did this before without the machine, and it was hard to keep the shape without a sturdy string.  And, just as I was thinking how I needed to find some adequate string to start making them again, here's your post.  Clothesline...perfect!  Grin

Actually, I didn't use clothes line, because I haven't found one that works well. I used this kind of yarn, suitable for weaving. http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_FT45S2NeCtg/SGvQ6T7YwnI/AAAAAAAAAvA/i4vP8tesVOs/s1600-h/IMG_2878.JPG It's lots of strings put together. Don't know the English name. It's not perfect for making bowls, but it works, and I haven't found anything better over here (Sweden) yet.

hmm...finding the right string to use seems tricky no matter where you are!

Think I might still give the clothesline a go, see what happens.  Will def. try to find something similar to what you used if it doesn't work though.  Thanks!!

Hey, those coiled baskets are really great! Thanks for the link to the tutorial. I love the way people on the craftstylish site have taken the basic idea and absolutely run away with it! It made me immediately start thinking about what uses I could find for such a basket. And a great way to use up those odd scraps of fabric. (The bottom of the sash cord bin at work always accumulates bits that are too short to use for anything - except for this!)

There's no reason the patterns made by the changing fabric colours have to be random, either. Because you're making up the fabric roll as you apply it to the coil, you can create deliberate patterns as you go.

This goes on my to-do list for sure!

Very nice. The 3rd graders at the school where I work just made similar baskets wrapping the rope with yarn.
