Many of my coiled fabric bowls have been sold and it is time to make some new ones. I'm not very good at explaining how I make things, so I took some photos while making a Gray and Yellow coiled fabric bowl.
After deciding what colors I'm going to use, I'll cut up a bunch of strips measuring 3/4".
Hmmm, they look kind of pink, but really they are gray. I like to start with a darker color (no particular reason why, just the way I do it), and coil it around the end of cotton rope.
Coil it up and zig zag stitch around.
I just keep going, adding different fabrics, around and around, until the coil measures around 5 inches.
At this point I lift the whole thing up on an angle, to get it to start looking like a bowl.
Just keep going around and around while holding the bowl on an angle until it gets to the desired depth.
I've always had trouble finishing it off, until I discovered making a decorative coil finish.
And there you have it. As soon as the sun comes out, I'll take some better photos and add this bowl to my Etsy Shop.
