I used scraps from my fabric box and sewed it together by hand I didn't stitch the fabric to the pieces of string I just wrapped them around very tightly.
The string I used was like the nylon stuff that's in pe bags, I'm not sure why I had so much of it but this seemed like as good as use as any.
The inside is really pretty and I especially like the spiral it makes but the back is a HOT MESS!
I used one of my favourite soup bowls to mould it around so its pretty small, In fact I'd go as far to say its a pretty useless bowl.
Until I realised I didn't have anywhere to store my button pattern weights! Then I realised its pretty darn perfect!
