    Fabric Bowl and More!

    I want to make a rug, but I thought I needed to start small. I saw a tutorial on rugs made with clothesline and immediately went on the hunt for the cotton clothesline, finally found it at Big Lots, these are very easy and addicting.

    Here's the tutorial I followed:

    It's for a bowl, but all you have to do for a rug, is to keep sewing flat.

    Also, I finished another baby quilt. The mommy loves monkees, so I did a little fussy cut squares with monkees in them.

      Cute projects. I made some of these bowls years ago and they all disappeared. Everyone loved them. Monkeys are adorable, too.

        I love fabric bowls! Yours is so cute and the shape is perfect for so many things.

        You can get the cotton clothesline at Joanns, Ace Hardware and other stores too - just keep your eye out. I've ordered mine online from Amazon as well.

                  I just ordered a fast turner to make tubes and have the larger covered piping pieces (don't know what they call that stuff - it's like cotton wrapped in a webbing) to make some bowls. Love those things!! Great going. You've just helped me add to my list of things I will never have time to finish.

                      Lisa, I love the handles you put on the bowl! I've made only one bowl, but I've made chair pads for my kitchen table to match the valances. It's not hard at all, just time consuming going round and round and round. Now I want to make something else, seeing your bowl.
