Embellished Thread Bowl

By:

Using water-soluble stabilizer as in the project for fiber scarves, you can create beautiful, translucent thread bowls and vases. This bowl from C&T Publishing, embellished with Perle cotton thread, is inspired by Wendy Hill's Fast, Fun & Easy (R) Incredible Thread-a-Bowls
 

Thread Embellished Fiber Bowl


Materials:

  • Water-soluble stabilizer
  • Perle cotton thread from Valdani thread- size 12
  • Large glass bowl
  • UV resistant clear acrylic coating

Instructions:

  1. I found the largest glass bowl I had and measured across the outside of the bowl.
     
  2. I used that measurement to draw a circle on heavyweight water-soluble stabilizer.

  3. Using regular weight thread, I first free-motioned stitched a grid, then I went back and free-motioned fairly densely all over.
     
  4. I drew the design that I wanted to use on another piece of water-soluble stabilizer and pinned it to the stitched stabilizer.

  5. I stitched out my design in size 12 Perle cotton, washed out most of the stabilizer, and draped it over my glass bowl to dry.
     
  6. After the bowl was dry, I took it off the glass bowl and sprayed the thread bowl with a few coats of UV resistant clear Acrylic coating.
