August 2024 Fabric Wrapped Bowls Supply List

Fabric:   Cut ¾” or 1” wide strips – lots of them.  At least One Fat Quarter.
Choice:  It’s all yours.  If you want scrappy, grab your bin.  If you want a more coordinated look, curate your strips as you would when making a quilt.  Color coordinate, (batik or standard quilting), or even accent unwrapped cording with small scraps.  Plan or don’t plan.  The choice is yours.
Lengths:    WOF (Width of Fabric) Strips work best but if you have shorter strips and are working scrappy, it’s easier with longer strips.  Make them at least 12”.
Threads:
Solid or variegated colors to compliment or contrast with your fabric choice. If you choose a thread color to compliment your fabric, the fabric will be the focus. If you choose a contrasting color, the thread may become the focus.  I like to use machine quilting thread, but any good quality thread will work fine.  The bobbin thread will be seen on the outside of the bowl.  Wind 2-3 bobbins prior to class.
These bowls are like potato chips – you can’t make just one!
