    Finding the all cotton clothes line is the hardest thing to do!! I found it in the hardware section of the 4th WalMart store I was in. I also found some in a Meier store in Illinois. When you find it, buy several. These bowls are so much fun to make. I did some oval ones by starting the bottom in an oval instead of a circle like Eddie did.

    Thanks Eddie for the tut!!

    I went by my local Wal-Mart today and saw that they had restocked the cotton clothesline packages that I had cleaned them out of last week. They had 16 packages today, and I relieved them of 8 more of those. :D

    Here is a site with a video tutorial that also shows some variations at the end. http://lameinbothfeet.blogspot.com/2...kets-what.html I like Eddie's better in that he wraps all the rope ahead of time. I have made several of these bowls and mats and have wrapped as I went which is very tiring. With Eddie's method I can watch TV and wrap and then the sewing goes much quicker. Eddie this is great job with your tutorial.

    Eddie, you contribute so much to this forum. Your tutorial is excellent - clear instructions with perfect photos. You said you used a size 90 needle. Do I need a special sewing foot, or just one that I would use for any zig zag stitch? Do you use cotton or polyester thread? Thanks for all your help! Kudos.

    I just used my regular J foot that accommodates a zigzag stitch and it worked fine.

    Hi Eddie - two questions before I get started on this bowl -
    1--what foot are you using?
    2--does the zigzag go through the rope or just catching the fabric?

    thanks for your reply!
