Coiled Fabric Bowl

   This morning we had a good crowd at Day Bee hosted by Mary Lou and Judy.  Jean showed this new Christmas top she pieced at the Sit and Sew last week.

    After lunch I decided to make a coiled fabric bowl.  I chose fall colors.  I may donate it for my guild silent auction next week.
I started with cotton clothesline and wrapped it with narrow strips of fabric.  Then I formed a coil and zigzag stitched it together using a 16 Jeans needle. 

After the bottom was as large as I wanted, I held it up as I added more rounds which formed the sides. 

Here is my second coiled fabric bowl. 

I have not tried anything fancy yet, like handles.
