Coiled Fabric Rope Mania

Today, I received the book I had ordered, It’s a Wrap, by Susan Breier.
After reading the Dedication segment written by Susan Breier, I knew I was going to love this book.
She dedicates the book to all women who don’t have any clue as to what they want to be when they grow up, even though they are already full grown!
Susan Breier also uses the phrase my mother frequently preached about using one’s “God-Given Talents.”
The possibilities for creating with rope and fabric are endless.
I do believe I am caught in a bit of Coiled Fabric Rope Mania.
The other day, I gave some small baskets to my Meemaw friends.
One of the Meemaws said that her granddaughter loved the basket.
She asked if I could make spring baskets for her two granddaughters.
I made two baskets similar to the one I had made my friend.
Then I made one smaller bowl with a wider brim.
With the remaining fabric strip, I made a basket with handles.
I am studying the different techniques in Breier’s book.
There is a square basket that I would like to try out.
Here is a little video displaying the baskets I made today.
I had prepared the fabric rope strips the day before.
This may be the tedious part of the whole process, but it is also fun to put colors together and see what happens.

  1. Oh My you are such an artist. I absolutely loved the video…..it’s music, as well as the wonderful array of baskets. You have quite the talent for combining the fabrics as well as the embellishments. Who knows where this talent will lead you? Simply AWESOME!!! πŸ™‚

  2. I’m so happy for you, that you’re having so much fun with this! I’m quite impressed, too, that you’ve gone so quickly from a bit intimidated to completely immersed! The video was fun, and like others said, the music was perfect for it.

    1. Thank you, Melanie. I want to get back to making a quilt soon, but family has been asking for baskets and things, so, it may be a while before I get back to making a quilt. I think I need to set up another sewing machine so I can easily have more projects going on at the same time. I am just looking for an excuse to get another sewing machine. πŸ™‚
