    Very very pretty! How long does it take you to make a bowl like that? I'm assuming from your description that you have made enough of them to know what you are doing, and to have an efficient technique, so I am curious how many hours (days?) that would take.

    Definitely on my bucket list, too.

    Lovely idea......... I understand that stitching these bowls is hard on the machine...... do you have an old machine you use or isn't that true???

    I wrap the clothesline when watching tv, about 2 hrs. To sew it together about 30 minutes.

    Use cotton clothesline, a 90/14 needle & a clean bobbin area. I used my Bernina Activa, no problem.
