Rope Bowl



Creative Sewing Club 2024
Ruth Locke

Welcome to Creative Sewing Club 2024! I’m looking forward to a year of sewing adventures with you.

I am very excited about this month’s project. I really like the way that the small splashes of color pop against the cream of the rope. These bowls make a great gift or fun decor addition to your home. Students will learn the fabric wrapping method to bowl making and how to successfully sew a bowl and finish the project. One skein of 100 yards of clothesline makes about a 12” round by 8” deep bowl. In class you will have time to make a set of bowls.

2 skeins of Gypsy Quilter 100% Cotton Clothesline*

⅛ yard of 5-7 fabrics*

King Tut 40Wt cotton thread (I would get a King Spool. I used #972 which matches the clothesline. You can also use up thread to have a more distinct look. I would suggest 40Wt thread and if you are using up thread, bring about 2000 yards of thread.) *

5 Empty Bobbins*

Wonder Clips 50 count or more*

Small empty trash can or similar container
