When I saw a tutorial from Prudent Baby on how to make Scrap-busting Fabric Bowls I thought it was the perfect craft project to try over here on Sweet Athena for our retro theme.
I gathered my supplies:
Fabric cut into 1″ strips
1/2″ piping cord
And got to work.
Here’s what I learned along the way:
|When cutting the fabric into 1″ strips don’t worry about the extra threads, that’s half the charm.|
|I had trouble finding piping cord, but rope works just as well.
Look for rope that is smooth and flexible.
Sizes help to create a desired look, but I would not go smaller than 1/4″ (the size I used).
|Have fun mixing and matching colors.
Some of my bowls had two patterns of fabrics, while others had 5.
Here are the four bowls I made:
|The great thing about these bowls is that you can decide what size and depth you would like each bowl depending on its purpose. Once you have the diameter you want on the bottom just start bringing the rope up as you wrap it.|
|Perfect for storing all your odds and ends.|
