This was a fabric I had dyed in a class awhile back to demonstrate the diagonal fold... I had no immediate plans for it and knew I could always dye another, so I decided to cut it up to make the bowl:
I folded it in half and cut 1 inch strips, then I began with the left most strip and started coiling around my clothesline:
As I finished coiling each strip, I began with the next strip from the left side of the strips, continuing until I had used up all the strips:
Here's the finished bowl, front and top views. Finished size is about 7 1/2" x 2 1/4", a great size to try out my inspiration! I plan to try using some of my swirl pattern on one as well, to see how the colors come out. I really love making these bowls and have lots of ideas for different color combinations! I think I'm going to call this one my "Rainbow Bowl"... kind of fits, don't you think?
