We had a brilliant evening making coiled fabric bowls with Jeanette. She told us they were addictive and she was right!! I can’t stop making them…

The best thing is that they are easy, look good and use a lot of fabric. There are loads of ideas on the internet with youtube videos showing different techniques. All use cotton clothesline. Some people use bias strips, others cut straight across the fabric and different makers use fabric from 3/4 inch to 1 1/2 inch strips. There are lots of ideas for finishing the bowls and some people suggest a quick spray of Scotchgard to protect the fabric. Several people have written books on the technique so why not search coiled fabric bowls and have a go!
