Coil Rope Bowl
You can get cotton rope at Back Door Quilts! Debbie will show you how to make a bowl or trivet with your zig zag sewing machine. You can make it plain, or embellish it with machine embroidery, or wrap cotton fabric around the top, intermittently through the bowl, or wrap all the rope with cotton! Lots of ideas to make these interesting bowls!
Choose your own collage adventure! If you’re a beginner, start with a fairly simple or small design, and purchase the pattern of your choice. Betty will help you with your project every step of the way!
