Coiled Fabric Bowl

Months ago, my brother sent meĀ  designer upholstery fabric, along with an order for fabric bowls.
Since his birthday is this weekend, I thought I better get started.
The fabric is beautiful, but it is way too thick and difficult to handle. I didn’t use the strip-wrap method because the material frayed too easily.I just about pulled my hair out trying to get this done. The results are a bit wonky, but it is the best I could do.

Getting the coil started was difficult.

I had to go back and hand-sew places I missed because of the bulkiness of the fabric.

The other material he sent is even thicker, so I do not think I will even try to make another bowl.
I’ll pack this up to mail tomorrow.
