Today my friend Zoe is popping over to do a super fun guest post. Thanks for sharing your skills with us, Zoe!
Hello to all my friends here in Mavis’s corner of the web!
1. Choose fabric scraps and rope. I use quilt cotton weight fabrics as that’s mostly what I have. Anything fairly lightweight will work. Heavier fabrics will get too bulky. For rope, I really like cloth wash line. It’s sturdy but not extremely thick, which is necessary to fit under the machine’s presser foot. Piping also works. Keep in mind that the thinner the rope, the more yardage will be needed to make a bowl. For a bowl about 8 inches in diameter you’ll need 8-10 yards of rope.
3. Choose a strip to begin with. This will be the center of the bowl bottom. Hold it in your hand at an angle and lay the rope on with the end of the rope being in the center of the end.
Time to begin sewing! Choose your thread (top thread will show on the inside of the bowl, bobbin thread on the outside). Set the stitch to a fairly large zigzag.
17. I enjoy watching the sides begin to grow!
21. With 5-6 inches of wrapped cord remaining, make a loop and stick the end in between the last two cord rounds to hide it. Secure with a pin. You can see my blue seam ripper pointing to the white pin head.
If you’d rather not sew but enjoy cooking, you can always sample my recipes over at my blog. Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!
