Gift production season is upon us - especially upon those of us who are cash-strapped. I'd noticed these coiled fabric bowls a couple years back, on the "i could do that" theory.
here. In a nutshell, you're wrapping strips of fabric around clothesline, then coiling and stitching the wrapped clothesline.
So, i finally made one today... (this one's for my mom, and it's safe to post it here before she gets it - i'll eat my hat if she sees it - the only way she sees anything on the blog is if i pull it up when i'm at her house and then push her into a chair in front of it).
