I decided to tackle this project after seeing it on http://www.theredthreadblog.com/

ropebowlropebowl2

The steps are simple: you position the rope, one layer at a time, into the bowl shape using coloured embroidery floss to hold it all together. Each layer is stitched into the lower one, wrapping the thread around the rope on the top layer.

As a first attempt, there are a few things I would improve on if I were to make another bowl. However, I just love the idea of taking rope and thread and turning it into a vessel.
