I thought if I can wind rope from fabric to make a bowl, I might be able to succeed with newspaper as well. After trying out different widths of strips, and making small round base samples with black, gray and white thread, I came to a solution.
Two 2 inch wide strips wound together made a good sturdy rope. I wanted the subtle colors of the newspaper to show through, and therefore decided on invisible thread to construct the bowl. Machine sewn together with narrow zigzag stitch.
I am very pleased with the result.

This is the result of my first attempt on branch weaving. It was not easy to do, the warp was slipping and twisting, and I wanted to give up in the middle of the work, but I am glad I did not. It is beautiful, it even has an artistic touch. I used variegated wool in autumn colors - after all it is October! :-)
