    Started working on one of these. Not sure if it will end up a basket or a tote bag. I really like this technique!

    I've been wanting to try this, but still not brave enough. Yours is looking great. Can't wait to see if you go with a basket or a purse.

    okay, I went back and looked at the picture more closely...duh!...I guess I do see the sewing machine there...lol

    so is it fabric strips wrapped around cotton cording?...I'm still trying to get a full visual on this...

    I've never seen this done before.

    Very pretty. I made a bowl a while ago and am still surprised how sturdy it is. They are time consuming to make (although fairly mindless once you get started) but definitely come out gorgeous and are VERY Usable. Can't wait to see the finished project (whatever it becomes)!

    Looks great! I want to make some fabric bowls, but keep putting it off. You've inspired me to move them up the list.

    I love this. I learned how at a how-to at a 30 minute class at a quilt show. I have it started but haven't finished it. Maybe I'll get it done....

    Cool -- I make fabric bowls, but not wrapped. That would be a great way to use up random strips.
