I was admiring the yarn bowls potters have been making. I was reluctant to buy or barter for one, thinking it would surely break with one swipe of a dog's tale. With all this lovely fabric I thought why don't I make yarn bowls out of fabric? I've been using them to keep all my sewing and fiber art paraphernalia organized. They are wonderful to hold round skeins while I ply yarn, and they keep the balls from falling apart in my knitting tote. I keep my pin cushion in one on the side of the sewing machine. I fill them with spools of thread. There is no end to how handy they are to have around. I love the way I can use up small amounts of fabric that are not enough for a tote. They are fully lined with a loop to run the yarn through. When you yank on the yarn and it falls off the coffee table there will be no sound of ceramics breaking into pieces.
