Carol posted about making a coiled fabric Easter basket last month. I saw this as an opportunity to make one or 2 as my scrap challenge. I went and purchased the clothesline and started on my coiled basket. Well, it looked more like a giant sombrero so I set off to start over again but this time instead of making a basket I just kept going around and I am making a rug. This process has been very time consuming since wrapping the fabric around the cord takes alot of time. I use Elmer's glue to start the coiling and I cut my stips into 1/2 inch wide. I have been working on this one for weeks and it is still not big enough. When working on these you must stitch on the open part of your sewing machine or it will curl up.
