I make bowl/baskets out of fabric scraps, old stained/holey/outgrown clothes, ribbons, and embroidery floss.
LOVE these!!What were you using as a base to weave the scraps around?
I don’t wrap the fabric around anything the fabric is rolled up and coiled, no frame just fabric and floss
I think they are from the hanging wire baskets. Fab idea, I will share on my page :)
No Monique, there is no frame used. She rolls the fabric and uses Floss to keep it in place. Very cool. :)
They are fabulous, any chance of doing a tutorial?
Do you sew the whole thing together, row by row? I’ve seen these with the fabric would around clothsline before and then machine sewed but yours look all hand done.
All hand done, I’m thinking about doing a tutorial if I do I’ll post it here
A tutorial would be good. I like the way the stitching looks on the inside :)
Ooops, s/b “wound” around clothesline.
Love these! I’ve been trying something similar myself – no rope, just fabric scraps and thread. I enjoy the process of stitching and using up scraps (beautiful scraps!) as much as the finished item.
How do you start a new bit of fabric? They look a bit like long fabric sausages! Do you join a new roll first or just place it and keep on stitching? Is it a kind of blanket stitch or more like crochet? A tutorial would be great.
Thanks for sharing your lovely works of art.
I think this post was made several years ago but like the others here I would love to see Erika show how she made her ‘bowlskets’. Not sure how these are made secure… Erika are you there?
