Coiled Mats Progression, Step 3

After mastering circles, ovals and coasters, I decided the next step would be to add another dimension to my coiled mats. I went UP with them, and made bowls or baskets!



It's quite exciting to see a three dimensional object emerge on my sewing machine from the very flat materials that I start with. There is so much potential with this, I need a few more hours in each day!


Rainbows are a wonderful way to use up loads of fabric scraps, and they turn out so beautifully! While I would love to make this bowl available in my shop, my kids have begged for this one to stay at home. So until I have the chance to make another soon, I must give in to my children for a change!

  2. I really like how your bowls turned out. I've been thinking of making some of the coasters but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I have all the supplies necessary so I should just do it.

  4. Thanks Margaret and Linda--so far all the fabrics are scraps or thrifted!

    Thanks Mary-Kay--coasters are a fun and quick project. Once you start you'll quickly get addicted!

    Thanks Brenda! You'll probably see some of your fabric scraps in these!
