You wrap fabric around clothesline and sew the resulting cord together to make a bowl. I used all but two feet of a 50-foot length of clothesline and about ½ yard of Charisma by Chez Moi for Moda fabric. The tutorial for this project was written by Linda Permann of CraftStylish and featured on Craftzine in January.
As I worked on the project, I contemplated what practical purpose this bowl could serve. It might hold sewing supplies, bags of sachets, keys, or other assorted items. And then I remembered a beautiful backgammon set my husband found in a small shop dedicated to backgammon in Athens, Greece a couple of years ago.
