I needed something to catch and sort left over fabrics. So the craze began !! I love these bowls. I made several small ones and gifted them. DD#2 got the most since I used colored thread when I put a few together. I just wanted to see what a color would do.. Since she gathered them up and took them to work, I didn’t get any photos. Maybe I can convince her to let me have a photo shoot… better yet, she could do a photo shoot for me. Each of these large bowls took 2 and 3 packages of rope…… And I can still dye them and turn them into BAGS.
If you click on the U tube.. it will show you just one way to make a rope basket/bowl. My largest is an oval at 15x 10. You can add handles or or other decorations. I just had fun with a basic shape and bought out all the clothes line rope at Wally World, (again).
I started out with this little u shape, then kept sewing around and around in circles… *** this is definitely the hardest part*** just getting started..
Had so much fun, I bought 10 more packages of rope… (get the kind you can sew on your machine. Set your stitch to the widest zig-zag setting) Have Fun!!
