At January's meeting of the East Midlands Quilt Group, the lovely Ange showed us how to make rope bowls using cotton cord. I used white 4mm cotton cord to whip up this baby.
I say whip up, it took me the entire meeting, in between gossiping and stuffing my face with cake. They are brilliant fun to make and the possibilities are endless. I really wish I'd taken photos of some of the other bowls the group made.
The next day, I wanted to make another, so decided to use up the rest of the rope, just keep going until it was all used. I also incorporated some fabric scraps for a dash of colour.
It turned out massive!! I made a right mess of attaching the fabric scraps, but I really like it anyway.
I wanted to use up the rest of the roll so that I wouldn't have oddments of cotton cording hanging around, but now I want to buy more and make more baskets!
