Grunge Zombies Unite!

Adel over at grungezombie.net kindly included a Lars and Addie set of coasters in her random entry finds feature. I'm psyched to be in such good company.

New Addiction.

A few months ago I started making these fabric bowls. They're vaguely reminiscent of those coil pots we all had to make in art class in grade school -- only hopefully a bit less clunky.
After covering thick cotton line with cotton bias strips, I use my sewing machine like a potters wheel to shape the bowl, holding it together with a zigzag stitch.

These combine the two elements that I love about sewing and crafting and art: utilitarian practicality and creativity. Form and function.

After a great Crafstravaganza weekend here at the State Fair Grounds in St Paul, I only have two bowls left. I've posted them on my etsy shop and will be adding more as I get back to the wheel... er... machine!
