Easy Quick DIY Holiday Gifts: Rope Bowls


There are two things you experience when holiday emails start to roll in: the pressure to make things for other people and the pressure to enjoy your creative time. Sewing is your hobby after all!

Giving a handmade gift is an act of generosity that shares your creative talents and joy with your friends and family. But what about how you experience your creative time?

This year, we’re practicing 8 weeks of mindful making. Each Wednesday, we’ll share a quick, scrap-busting sewing project, so you can spend the next few months having fun sewing and making things you’ll use (or gift).

Why these 8 projects?

– You’ll have FUN
– These projects are quick, but you’ll feel accomplished when you finish
– Use fabric scraps or notions you have around home
– You can watch a step-by-step video
– See finished examples to give you ideas

This week we’re making rope bowls! All you need is:

– Rope, macrame, cotton cording, or even heavy yarn
– Thread
– A zigzag stitch
– Optional: fabric scraps for decorative pops of color
