Last class was going to be very easy. We were going to make a few simple, small rolled bowls. Well, we found out there is a LOT more to making a rolled bowl than we recalled from First Grade clay making. First, I discovered there are different size fabric strips depending on how you wrap the cord. Second, discovered there was more than one way to wrap the cord. Third, there are many different kinds of cord that can be used, and fourth and last, what about the THREAD? So, once I realized all of the variables that could influence one little bowl class, I forged on to try and get at least one student to complete at least one bowl. The lesson I learned about variables in a project is the same one that slaps me every time. They all came out to play in one class. Oh boy!
I am going to do a page on the the rolled bowls. Actually the pattern is taking a little of this and a little of that, depending on different looks. They all came out. Everyone loved the bowls and I recommend the project for anyone looking for something different to do this summer. The bowls make great little gifts and you can use pretty ugly fabric that turns out cute. Just go to the page, "Rolled Bowls."
