Fabric Bowl

I used batik scraps wrapped around macrame cording to create this bowl.
I have made several fabric wrapped clothesline bowl and baskets before (search postings for others), but recently I acquired some macrame cording, so I thought I would try making a fabric wrapped bowl using the macrame cording. While the macrame cording is a bit softer and limper than the clothesline, it did work. In fact, after I made this bowl I played around with it and crimped the top edge with my hands like you would crimp the top of a pie crust. The crimping stays in place as long as I don't touch it.

  1. I've made a couple of these in the past too. Not as pretty as yours though.

  3. Your bowl is really fun! I've made these types of bowls before but it's been a whole buncha years now. I remember it as being a fun thing to do.

  5. Hi,
    i love the look i wonder if you added some starch if that would help to keep the shape in place because i like the look of the crimped top.

  6. Love this bowl! I made something similar eons & eons ago, but I recall the instructions required a special cording that was very stiff & also expensive. I'll have to try your version.
