So I made more of those coiled fabric bowls. I was thinking about just updating the post from before but where's the fun in that?

KodaNRoxyDogs had some fabric bowls on her Pinterest so claimed her for some. One for her color themes for them was B&W and she wanted them about 4-6 inches, or just big enough for a couple sets of keys and a wallet. This is what I came up with:


First one, kind of boring, but still learning. First time I have used different kinds of fabric in the same bowl.


And then I thought I would give handles a go. They didn't come out exactly like I had imagined, but they still make me happy.



This one was going to be way taller, just to give some variety in size, but I ran out of black thread! Oh noes! So I improvised with some red feathers. She said she likes this one the best.


And just a couple I made my mom, just for the hell of it. We were talking on the phone one day and before hanging up I asked if I could do anything for her, if she needed anything from me, and she answered that yeah, I could make her some of those coiled bowls. So I did! This fabric came from her or her mom or her aunt, or someone that would make it special for her.

Thanks everyone! You should all try it. It is way easier than I thought it would be. I mean, I had the book for over a year before I tried it because i was timid but I had no reason to be. So... make some! And post them! I want to see.
