Bowl for a Batt

I'm betting you recognize what this pile of fabric strips is for. You've seen me making these a lot lately. Well I needed one more in custom colors.


Here is the finished bowl.


An online friend, Linda, wanted a bowl, so I proposed a swap. She makes wool batts for yarn spinning and I will get a batt and she will get a bowl. Good deal!

  1. A very good deal indeed! I had a random pile of strips that I found over Christmas while my back was messed up. I started a bowl and would work on it in 15 miute increments. I just kept going until all of the strips were gone. It turned out surprisingly well. I'll post it later.
