Rope Bowls with Candy Scott
Making rope bowls is my go to when I need a break from other projects, or just to relax. From coasters, to trivets, to rope bowls, etc., it is just fun. The best part, if you don’t like it, you can easily rip it apart and make something else. Just a zig zag stitch, thread, and rope no larger than 5/16” in diameter and you can make something unique. Great ready to have a little fun and create something different.
