Coil Pots

Once I had  done Helen Deighton's coil pots workshop there was no stopping me. Its basically wrapping fabric strips around a thick cord and then sewing it together with a zigzag stitch.

This is the pot I made at the workshop. Its all from scraps with rough edges. I love the effect.

I then went on to make a pot to put pine cones in by the fire. I used some mucky coloured batik and the end effect is superb.

Next I made a similar size pot with pastel batiks. I love this pot the most.
