I really LOVE the fabric in the middle. I hope I can find more.
It has a wine background with tan, cream and reddish orange leaves. I want to make a flat mat and some coasters with this same pattern as the bowl but I am all out of it.
This is my 3rd fabric bowl and they are getting easier to make. I shaved off an hour making this one. I tried to follow the same design as the 2nd one.
But I did make this one a bit taller AND notice the handles. Completely different from the others. I made the handle from four rounds of coils and then I hand sewed them to the sides. The buttons cover the beginning and ending of the coil.
I REALLY like how this came out. It has a cleaner look. I cut the strips on the bias for this one and #2. I am still using macrame cord instead of clothes line. 8mm cord. I have enough left of this roll for 2 more baskets.
It takes LOTS of thread. I start off with two full bobbins wound from one spool and a 2nd spool in the machine. I end up running out of bobbin thread right about near the end. If you make one of these bowls, make sure you have plenty of thread.
It is sooooo much prettier than these pictures show.
Measures 11 1/2″ diameter and 5″ height.
