Rope Bowl

This was my first rope bowl.  I saw people making them on Instagram, so I had to make one too, but I did not know how.  When my quilt guild asked for ideas for upcoming meetings, I asked for the rope bowl.  
 It doesn't look great, but it is my first bowl, and I did have a broken finger.
 My husband wants a red one now.
 My cats liked helping me with this project.
 I saw someone make one without the fabric and it looked very nice.  My neighbor said you can color the ropes with sharpie markers.

Here is the article I wrote for my local paper, it was pretty neat seeing my name in print.
Have you made one of these bowls before?

Your bowl looks great. Cats and ropes/strings go hand in hand ;D

You can also dye the rope. I have the rope, and the dye, I just need to get started. Nice bowl. Hope the finger is getting better.

No, haven't made one of these bowls, but yours looks great! Thanks for sharing on Midweek Makers!

Wait! What? It's your first bowl AND you have a broken finger PLUS a helpful cat? I'd say this was one gorgeous bowl even if your fingers were intact and the cat was asleep :)

I've made several of these. They're fun! Yours looks great.
