Re: My 2nd Fabric Bowl

Hi there. I didn't measure the macrame cord before starting so I can't tell you exactly. And I am making my bowls a bit larger than the one posted here at Craft Stylish. BUT... I am on my 3rd bowl and still have plenty of cord leftover. I bet I have enough to make 2 more bowls.

I got the cord at Munro Crafts. http://www.munrocrafts.com/

Good idea on these for gifts. I plan to gift a few too.

Re: Sewn Birthday Card
