Sea glass fabric bowl

"Sea Glass and Fog" by Sherrie Spangler

My "Sea Glass and Fog" quilt is finished and hanging above the fireplace mantel, and now I'm using the scraps to make a coiled fabric bowl.

I blogged about the making the bowls here:

It's simply a matter of wrapping strips of fabric around clothesline (held by dabs of glue at either end) and then zig-zagging it together in a coil shape. The tutorial link above explains it in more detail.

The rough-textured beige fabric being added above is Osnaburg cloth, a wonderful nubby cotton. After making the base as wide as you want, you simply tilt it up to the left of the machine and overlap the next round to start the sides.

I got this far and then I stopped to go to a Mexican restaurant, and now I'm too stuffed to sew anymore tonight.

Have a colorful day

Oh, I love how Sea Glass came out - and what an appropriate name. The "matching" bowl will be a nice touch.
