I'm not here to tell you how to make them. There are tons of pins on pinterest for these and tutorials on you tube. They all do a good job...so just go find those. Try searching under coilbaskets or ropebaskets or ropebowls or fabric bowls etc. You'll find them.
The white basket above is the first basket I made. And I love it. Seriously. Instant fall in love perfection. I'm aiming to keep mine simple for now. I thought I would want to wrap these with fabric because I was seeing some fabulous bowls being made that way. And maybe I still will. But for now I'm really enjoying the texture of the rope. FYI: the rope I use is clothesline rope that I buy at Joanns. It can be found in the notions aisle near the ironing supplies.
It wasn't long before I found myself already wanting to change things up a bit. One bowl in and I was full of ideas! So I found myself dying for the first time. I was happy with how my cording turned out but I'm already ready to try more dying techniques. I just got back from purchasing more cording and two dye packs to see what else I can do.
This bowl was quite large for me and for my third attempt I wanted to try a smaller one. So I broke into my pretty ombre blue cording again and made another bowl with some little accents.
I feel like I've found a new hobby! Never mind that it still uses my sewing machine. ;)
