Deep Dive

When something really grabs me, I dive into it.
Kiesza

Fabric rope bowls have really “grabbed” me, and I have taken a deep dive into producing bowls!

I have been playing around with different sizes and shapes.
It is a great way to use up scraps
I also viewed some online tutorials on making these bowls without wrapping fabric around the rope.
I had some minimal lengths of rope left over from making the bowls, so I made these tiny bowls without fabric.


My brother liked the bowls so much, that he sent me a box of fabulous fabric.
I thought it was for me.
It was not.

The fabric came with an order for one large bowl, one small bowl, and one shopping tote bag!
It is going to be a bit of a challenge to make the bowls out of this fabric.
The fabric is a bit thicker than what I have used.
I might have to wrap the strips around the rope instead of placing the rope in the middle of the folded strip.
My brother graciously said there is no timeline on this fabric.
I think it is only fair that my brother send a box of fabric for me!

  1. When something really grabs me, I dive into it. – That is the perfect quote for you! I continue to be amazed at your basketry πŸ™‚ I love the idea of making a basket with just the clothesline – how fun! Before you know it you will have your fabric basket Etsy shop!

  2. Love your bowls, Chela!!! Good luck with doing your brother’s. Sometimes a challenge like that is just what we need. Can’t wait to see what you come up with. The fabric looks lovely!

    1. Thanks.
      His “order” is a bit intimidating, but I am looking forward to trying it out. I plan to make a practice large basket out of scraps. I have not yet made a large one, so I need to try it out.
