fabric pots

I currently have a book on on loan from my local library on how to make fabric coil pots. I had never attempted fabric pot making before but the process looked very easy so this morning I had a go and had such fun that this afternoon I made another one. The smaller one is 15cm wide at the brim and 5cm high with a core of double thickness jute twine. The bigger one is 10cm high and 24cm wide with a core of plastic cord. I’m going to give them both a coat of watered down PVA glue to stop any future fraying although this is not suggested in the book. After that I just have to decide what they could be used for!DSCF9059

    Did you find a difference between the jute twine and plastic cores? Was one better to work with than the other?

      I wouldn’t say that one was any better than the other but the twine being of a small diameter has made the pot thinner while the thicker plastic core has given the larger pot more stability and thickness. Different fabrics would affect the outcome too.
