This is one of CraftyGemini's bowls. SO CUTE!!!
This girl was so cute and I loved the baskets, so I decided to try my own.
I started with this 100% cotton rope (from walmart 3.00) and about 1/2 yard of this really hideous floral print that I'm pretty sure came from my mom's fabric collection. I seem to remember these being curtains at some point.
Setting the machine to a very wide zig-zag with a pretty long stitch length, just start in the very middle and zig-zag across the gap to join each new coiled layer. Sewing, wrapping, sewing, wrapping.......
round and round...
This bowl could be as large as you like, but I had limited time (the kids movie was almost over) so I decided to finish it off.
I found a remnant of a coordinating green and added 2 rounds. When I finished off, I cut the rope at an angle with about 4 inches of green hanging over the end. I twisted it tightly and it made a tapering effect. I continued to sew the twisted green fabric and back-tacked it a bit just to secure the end.
The end result is pretty cool, I could use this on my nightstand for my cell phone and keys :)
Some examples I found on the interwebs of what you can make with this technique (and a little more practice)
