Fabric Scraps Bowl

Coil fabric scraps into a bowl that can corral your pocket change.

What you'll need:

  • Crafts Supplies for Fabric-Scraps Bowl
  • 100-percent-cotton rope, approximately 1/4-inch diameter
  • Decorative thread for bobbin
  • Regular sewing thread for top

1. Cut fabrics into 45x1-inch strips. (The number of strips needed is determined by how much they are overlapped on the rope.) Wrap a fabric strip over one end of the rope, slightly overlapping fabric so the rope does not show through. Coil fabric-wrapped rope; hand-tack at center.

2. Continue wrapping rope with fabric, adding strips randomly or in a pattern, and coiling fabric-wrapped rope, machine-zigzag-stitching to secure the coils together. Shape bowl by angling coils upward while zigzag-stitching.

3. When desired shape and size is reached, cut rope, wrap end with fabric, and secure with zigzag stitches. Trim off fabric tail.
