Fabric Coil Bowl
I followed a tutorial I found on CraftStylish. My goal is to use up all the old fabric I found in my sewing dresser. One piece down - about a dozen left to go. Yay?
Not bad for a first attempt. The rayon frayed a lot. I did some research and am in the process of making a second one which is not looking so frayed. It didn't take long to get the hang of wrapping the cord. Sewing went quickly, wrapping was slow. I think it took a couple of hours to make this bowl (not counting cutting the fabric). It was addicting - I couldn't stop the first one until I finished. I paused work on the second only because I started late in the day.
I plan to make a couple more. I think that should burn through my old rayon and old lining material. I'll need more clothesline; I'm nearly through the 100 feet that I bought. Then, of course, I'll need to figure out what to do with the final products. Bowls, anyone?
