(Sorry about the photo quality, I can't seem to find anywhere in this house with good light. I'm working on it!)
I've since thought of loads of different variations for these bowls. I wanted to make a fruit bowl as I don't have one, but 10 metres of cord (the amount I bought) was only enough to make this quite small bowl. I've since found different colours of the cord on eBay, so I might try that. Or maybe painting the cord different colours first so that the bowl is multicoloured. Endless possibilities... I might even make placemats for my table although usually I hate those kind of unnecessary things.
I think this bowl might live in my bedroom as a receptacle for hair ties and kirby grips and jewellery, all those little things that accumulate and don't really have a proper home.
Has anyone else ever tried anything like this? You can make similar things by weaving paper together too (tutorial here) which I was thinking of trying soon too.
