I couldn't help myself, thinking about making these kept me awake at night.  The first one is made from a wild looking orange/yellow/purple stripes..the other one is a very subltle tone on tone dupioni silk stripe.  Love them...

How beautiful!  Are you sewing these by hand?  The remind me of the pine needle bowls---the second one is my favorite--the colors are so lovely! Good job!

Hope to see more!

Make on the sewing machine, I have no patience for hand sewing.  The silk one is my favorite too.  I tried to make those pine needle bowls when I was a kid, but I just wasn't too good at it.  You are right they do look simlar.

oh I see now!  You did such a beautiful job wrapping the fabric that I thought it was embroidery thread! Cheesy

They are addicting!  And even ugly fabric makes a beautiful bowl so it is a good way to use them up!

Yes, fabric is a lot easier than pine needles! Cheesy

These are awesome- I have been wanting to try my hand at these too - what kind of clothes line did you use to wrap with fabric - one tutorial I read said to use cotton clothesline, but I am having trouble finding that.  Thanks for any help.   Smiley

As long as it's not the plastic kind you're okay.  i think the kind I use is cotton/polyester.  I buy it in the grocery store - cheap!  Smiley

I got mine at Walmart, 3.87 for 100 ft.  It's cotton on the outside but has a core of some kind of solid (but soft and flexible) plastic.  I was worried that the machine would hate it but I didn't have any trouble at all with it.

Thanks thisburdsabsurd and monstergramma - I'm going to Walmart tonight, so I will go ahead and get it there.  I had seen it there, but because of the polyester/plastic mix, I wasn't sure it would work.  Thanks again!   Smiley

Wow--that is a good price for the clothesline!  I think I was paying almost $7 for 100 feet at Ace Hardware!  I know some people use welting cord found in the upholstery section of the fabric stores...I have not priced that yet...

I will have hubby check out Walmart for me!
