Since my pottery days I've had an ongoing fascination with vessel shapes and find myself now translating them from clay to textiles.
Ever since I bought this book:
I've had a yen to try something like this:
so first made some cord by cutting up a light fabric into strips, twisting it into a cord-ish shape and running it through the sewing machine with a zig zag stitch
I first tried joining the strips with a traditional basket method as described in the book where the joining thread appears on the outside of the basket, but the appearance just wasn't working for me so I went to the next idea of using a sewing needle and hiding the joining stitches
As you can imagine it is a very slow process and I'm afraid I suffer from something called "want it finished NOW" ..... I kinda lost interest before it turned into a vessel, and it grew into a barnacle
I've started another in a different colour scheme, I might make this one a long term project
