    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!

    I just used my Brother's J foot, which is the foot for zigzag stitching. And yes you do go through the rope with the needle. I know it sounds "machine abusive" but it's not, at least mine didn't seem to mind at all. :)

    I wrap my cord before I sew too. I can't imagine doing it the way shown on that other website. Too time consuming and ...well... fragmented. Once I get the fabric and cord glued together (gotta love that Elmer's glue), the baskets come right together!. Thanks Eddie.

    I am very new to quilting. But I was reading and looking at the tutorial you have on these bowls. They look very interesting. I think I an going to get the supplies this weekend and try and make one. What kinda of thread do you use. Like regular sewing thread or heavy duty sewing thread. I just brought a new brother sewing machine, so I need to put it to good use. Thank You for the very good instructions.

    I just used regular sewing thread, nothing special about it.

    Have any of you made rag rugs like this? I am going to try this week. Bowls are great but I want a couple of rugs and my hands won't pull thru the rope and fabric. Great job of teaching, Eddie.

    Thank you for the detailed tutorial, Eddie! I attempted this a couple time but ended in tears when my needles continued to snap. I spoke to a lady in Paducah this last week who gave me some pointers so with her encouragement and this awesome post I will be trying again very soon. I'll be sure to let you know how it goes! :-D

    Hi Eddie! I can see right off I bought the wrong kind of rope for this. Well, hubby has a new rope for the boat. Next time at Walmart I'll get a cotton rope. Have you played yet with the new quilting machine? Waiting to hear what projects you got lined up.

    Thanks, this tutorial helped not only with the bowls, but seems I could use this application for a rug using larger rope. Excellent!
