Hi everyone! I’ve been meaning to make a bowl for Jax for quite some time now as he is a lover of all bowls and boxes! I thought this fabric and rope bowl would be the perfect fit for him and boy was I right!
He is constantly laying in his bowl and even hung out with me while I made it LOL! It took me a day to make the bowl, and that included filming time so you could definitely whip one out fairly quickly once you get going.
Supplies for this project are simple:
- 3/8″ Cotton Filler Cord (I used about 12 yards)
- 1 Moda Honey Bun or about 18-20 1.5″ x WOF strips
- Jeans/Denim Needle
- Wonder Clips
- Straight Pins (Mine are the Just Pins from Fat Quarter Shop aren’t they cute!)
- Fabric Scissors
- Magnetic Pin Bowl
- Juki G210 Machine
Ready to get started on this super easy project?
Watch the Fabric Rope Bowl Sewing Tutorial here!
I used wonder clips to help hold my fabric strips. Once I got the base going, I just continued adding more fabric strips. I think I added about 5 or so at a time to make it go a little faster.
You can make these bowls any size you like! Mine was about 8” on the base and then I started up the sides. It was a perfect fit!
The higher you angle your base, the steeper your sides will be. You can make the sides as steep or gradual of a slope as you like.
You’ll see the sides taking form after a couple of rows!
And it’s as easy as that! This is such a fun project!
As you can see this project is super easy and perfect for storing all kinds of goodies from to craft supplies and kitties!

This is SO cute! I love how simple they are to make and that they help use up extra fabric scraps.
Wonderful! I saved your tutorial. I’m glad your kittie has a new bowl!
Oh lovely! I am inspired to try this using my scraps!
