    Very nice tutorial. I have found another way of doing my strips. I don't cut them on the bias, that way you can use many scraps. I then cut and sew the strips together and put them through my bias tape maker. It's so fast and you don't have the raw edges.

    Eddie - approx how much fabric did it take to make the bowl?

    I used about a yard on each. Since I was cutting on the bias I had large triangles of fabric left over, and needed some of those for the larger bowl to make extra strips, but didn't needed them for the smaller bowl. So a yard of fabric would work either way.

    Thank you, Connie. I'll try the hardward store again in the drapery/curtain dept. We don't have the fabric store you spoke of but we have Joann's so I'll also check with them. Thanks again.

    Just a note ...I could not find this clothesline at my local Walmart. In fact, I called 3 other Walmarts and they did not carry either. I did find a few remaining packages at one Walmart...I am kind of thinking some Walmarts have discontinued carrying it.

    I found it at Ace Hardware but it was pretty expensive. Something like 11 dollars a package of 100 ft (if I recall correctly).

    Thank you Eddie! What a perfect tutorial! I was going through some of my fabrics last night and pulled out a few "OMG what was I thinking???" prints. These bowls and hot pads would be prefect for them! Now off to find some clothesline.

    Wow, that was kind of high. :shock: I think the 100' package that I bought at Wal-Mart was a little over $2.

    These are perfect for getting rid of some of those "What was I thinking?" fabric. :) The colors are much more important that the pattern with these, so these are good for using up some of those fabrics that have languished in your stash waiting to be freed. :D

    I got my 100 ft of cotton clothesline for $4.50 here in Alaska. Cut fabric, covered about 40 feet of rope and now all I need is a quilting needle. I'm so psyched to do this!!

    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
