    I am making these clothesline bowls for our Quilt show in May of 2013. Members of the quild were asked to make items to sell to help pay for putting on the show. They are so much fun to make.

    I really want to make one of these but I cannot find COTTON clothesline. I have been to 3 stores and they all only have a poly blend. Where are you guys finding your cotton rope?

    You would think in a hardware store would be the place to find clothes line.

    Where can I find directions for this project? We have a craft bazaar coming up in November and this looks like a good seller to me.
    Those who are piecemakers will sew seeds.

    I found my cotton clothesline at the $ store. The label reads...SecureLine Cotton Clothesline 100ft. X 3/16in. I am going to try the 3/8 polyester rope that I have left over from doing the fancy lawn chairs to see what kind of a basket it will do. My lat basket I made with a Rayon blend? fabric and it turned out nicely. There are a couple of tutorials on QB, one done by Eddie and someone else. There are also more pictures of fantastics examples in different posts. There are tutorials on the net also.

    I started with the boook by
    Susan Breier "It's A Wrap" but there are many instructions on You Tube that will show you how to make these. I just made them smaller than usual to fit my purpose. By the way, some of the ugliest fabric and multi colored fabric made the cutiest bowls.

    They all look great. I own the rope and a book on making larger bowls etc. but I just haven't gotten to them yet.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    These are real winners and look like they'd have lots of uses!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Were these made by hand or sewed on a sewing machine? I only ask because a friend and I purchased the books It's A Wrap and It's A Wrap II to do these using a sewing machine. As a matter of fact I was reviewing the book just the other day getting info on what I needed to get started doing so.
