Introduction: Braided Rag Bowl

It's pretty simple. I had a pillowcase and a sheet of fabric that I got from the swap shed at the town dump. I cut them into 1 inch strips and braided them together using the braiding clamp my great grandmother used for her braided rugs. Once I had enough braided fabric I started sewing the braids together using fishing wire (easier to not see it rather than thread) and the braiding needle that was also my great grandmother's, making sure to keep the fishing wire tight and knotting it every 3-4 stitches so It wouldn't slip out. This bowl is exactly what I was looking to achieve and it was easy and fun to make.
