Well, isn't this fun? I purchased the book "It's A Wrap" and took a class at my quilt shop and now look what I can do. It's fabric strips wrapped around cotton clothesline. Using a zig-zag (that doesn't show nearly as much as it appears in this photo) you can make ovals, rounds, even square baskets,bowls and bags. I need to work out adding handles -- my first attempt is not too sturdy. I wouldn't want to try carrying anything of substance.

Love your bowl. 'Course I love anything with that raggy look!!! Great job.

Really neat bowls!! DO they really need to be stiff? I figure they are for keeping slouchy things anyway and you just scoop them up with the contents!!

Are they sewn on the machine then???

Cool way to use up more fabric. I like the one with the kite shapes on it that looks like an antique bit of cloth. Having fun with these?
