More coiled bowls

I really think I need a 12 step program…..

I am so addicted to making these coil bowls. I made a few last night, called a friend and told her that I was done, burned out, finished. I felt fulfilled and didn’t need to make another bowl……..I lied! This morning when the one bit of wrapped cord called out to me!!!! Let me show you what I’ve done since my last “bowl check in.”

This is a top view of the square basket I made. It is way more patchkying than I like (yeah, that's Yiddish for fiddling with. It's just that patchying fits much better than fiddling around!).

This is what you get when you wrap 100 ft of clothesline with the same combination of fabrics.

I've been wrapping the line with scraps. Hey, I spent the same amount of money on the 1" scrap as the 2 1/2" purposely cut strip! I made this cutie. It's really small. DH said he wants to take it to work to put on his desk.

This was the last one that was just calling my name. I finished it last night and am free of wrapped cord.

These are all of my creations. I didn't take individual shots of the hot mats and coasters.

Your bowls are beautiful. I'd give it a try but do I need another addiction?

My dear - I can see 'totes' as MORE possibilities! A Tote would be REALLY smashing!!! Go for it! These are sll just wonderful. I have the book, the fabric (uh hem) AND 2, yes 2 packages of the rope. Haven't done even one yet. 8-(

These are so adorable! I've been wanting to make these as well, but I have been resisting - trying to finish up current projects before starting any new ones.

You're doing great. Rag/coiled baskets take a long time to make but you feel so good when you're done.

Good job!
