Rope coil baskets

 

Surprisingly easy to learn this technique, but it does take quite a while at the sewing machine

Cotton washing line rope is coiled, pinned and then secured with a zig zag stitch. The coil grows as big as you choose thenĀ  to create bowl sides you lift the coil as you zig zag.

For this set I wrapped scraps of fabric around the rope at random intervals.

Ideal for kitchen keys, bread or fruit bowls…might try some place mats and coasters next time
