Bowl making

I have been having lots of fun making bowls from clothesline; it's kind of like making pottery but you don't get dirty. You wrap fabric around clothesline and then zig zag stitch it on the machine. The fun part is seeing how it's going to turn out because you never quite know. Lately, I have been choosing neutral and solid colors because the final results look a lot like actual woven baskets. The first photos below are neutral and this is a gift for my friend Carol who enjoys getting handmade gifts.

Sometimes, I am really very happy with my fabric choice. I have no idea what I will do with this bowl below but I am really pleased with it.
