Here is how to make fabric bowls: Take a bunch of too narrow to be useful fabric strips and either sew or tie or loop together into as long a strip as you can manage during the next step.
Next step: tie your fabric strip to the outside of a bobbin, put the bobbin on its winder, and then spin the strip into a twisted cord. Or, if you have a cordless drill and a helper, make a strip the length of your house and tie a knot in one end of the strip. Clamp the drill chuck on to the knot and spin, spin, spin a long cord. Roll this cord into a ball and then zigzag along the length of the cord. (This is a great way to use up old, possibly weak thread.)
