    Good morning. I do believe these can be hand sewn. Look for instructions for pine needle baskets 🧺 and use that stitch. Guideposts.org or mother earth news.com have them and of course you tube. It uses a woven stitch so you don’t sew through the rope. Hmmm I’m getting ideas. White with red embroidery thread might be pretty. Thanks for the post. These are cute.

      Yes, you can hand sew. I think the hand-sewn bowls and baskets are softer, less stiff, and still very beautiful. We have a version of this as well. https://liagriffith.com/woven-bowls/

    How do you get the different color inside. Is it a separate bowl nested in the larger one? Thank you

      We used acrylic paint (see step 14 of the photo tutorial), and yes we created various sizes to create nesting bowls!

    Are you using a special sewing machine foot of any kind?

    Could hand sew but would be pretty long job and tedious, need strong hands. They are so cute, love interior colors, be darned handy. Would be cute hung on wall, interior showing, with different shapes and interior colors. Great project. Have wonderful rest of week

    Could you use glue instead of sewing? I do not own nor know how to sew.

      Sorry Stacy, glue wouldn’t work for this project. You could certainly try the same method with glue but it just wouldn’t hold up!
