Rope Sewing Reinvented with Lindsey Zinno and Nancy Zieman

Sewing yards and yards of cotton rope or clothesline cording together to create baskets, trivets, or bags is not a new technique. My guest for this next series creates multifunctional baskets, bags, and coasters for the modern home. She learned to sew at a young age, started a business during high school, and continues to create all the projects for her business while studying Environmental Sciences at the University of Cincinnati. Welcome Lindsey Zinno, who will inspire us with her reinvented rope sewing projects. Watch the first in this two-part series Rope Sewing Reinvented on Sewing With Nancy.

Find everything you’ll need to complete these projects in this Rope Sewing Reinvented Starter Kit from Nancy’s Notions.

RopeSewingKit

The Coaster Basics

The coasters show Lindsey’s simple, yet functional style, using uncovered cotton rope—it’s the first project we’ll show you how to make. Use uncovered natural clothesline rope to create a more contemporary design with a traditional technique. Colored thread gives a stylish look. Learn what supplies and techniques Lindsey uses on today’s new episode of Sewing With Nancy.

Coaster LindsayZinno NancyZiemanMini Dishes

The next step to rope sewing is making vessels, this mini dish can be used for keys, jewelry, garlic, potpourri, or even to tidy up your desk. Use mini dishes for lavender buds and bobbins. Lindsey shares how she creates the mini dish with decorative details on today’s new episode.

Oval Tray

Once you’ve mastered the art of shaping a rope vessel, learn to experiment with the design. Lindsey’s Oval Tray is purposeful, while having a modern, artistic style. The angle of stitching determines the vessel shape and the inclusion of rope handles increases the functionality. Watch us create this design on Sewing With Nancy.

    I would start with the coasters for the teachers at my grandchildren’s daycare and then venture onto a rug for my entryway.

  • Alana Cunningham
    November 2, 2017

    I would start with sewing a set of coasters, then move on to a vessel.

  • Dinah Miller
    November 2, 2017

    I love the look of the natural rope! I have only seen fabric wrapped pieces. Definitely will make one of the coasters to try this!

  • Pamela Wynfield
    November 2, 2017

    I always dream big! My goal would be to make the most complicated item. I can see a big beautiful clothes hamper replacing my ugly green one. This would add a great look to my laundry room.

  • Penny Moss
    November 2, 2017

    I’d love to try the coaster but keep going and make it a little larger so I could use it as a hot pad in my kitchen

  • Sherrie
    November 2, 2017

    I love the oval tray with handles! These have such a unique vibe… farmhouse meets industrial. Pretty cool!

  • Debbie Rhodes
    November 2, 2017

    I have made the wrapped clothesline for placemats on my dining table. They are heavy enough to protect from hot plates. Thanks for all you do.

  • CYNDY Lacey
    November 2, 2017

    I would live to make the bag. I just love the look of the rope used in bags and totes.

  • Mandy R Laseter
    November 2, 2017

    I would definitely start by making a coaster to become familiar with the technique.

  • Donna Fecteau
    November 2, 2017

    I think I would start small and make the coasters, but that tote bag is wonderful.

  • Judy Mihalka
    November 2, 2017

    I just made a basket and it was so much fun and easy, next I will try something with handles.

    The coasters are perfect for my morning coffee mug !!

  • diane c
    November 2, 2017

  • Nikki
    November 2, 2017

    I would like to make some of the trays. We live in our RV full-time. I could make them in custom sizes to solve some storage issues.

  • Sue J
    November 2, 2017

    I would also practice with the coaster…I have some varigated thread just waiting for this project. Then I would try the oval basket with handles…love the natural look…might even try to incorporate some driftwood handles. Can’t wait. Like I need more projects…LOL.

  • Peggy V
    November 2, 2017

    So clever, would love to learn this new to me method. I would love to make the tote that is on the cover of the book!!!

  • Karen A
    November 2, 2017

    I would make the oval basket as a holder for a set of the coasters.

  • Nancy Swor
    November 2, 2017

    I would start with the coasters – baby steps, right? I think those would be excellent girts. I am intrigued with the bag, so that would be my crème de la crème.

  • Peggy Shepherd
    November 2, 2017

    Would love to try this. Have always said I would, maybe now is the time. 🙂

  • MaryAnn B
    November 2, 2017

    November 2, 2017

    I would make a set of coasters to coordinate with the cups in my pottery set. Then I would make a rug for my bathroom. Love this look.

  • Susan T
    November 2, 2017

    I would experiment with different colors of threads on the coaster project. How fun and practical.

  • Donna Belisle
    November 2, 2017

    I would love to win this helpful book as I tried some yrs. ago to make a bowl and it was a grand-flop! I would first try the tray and see if this book helps me to do it the right way, then I would try a bowl.

  • Sybil Derderian
    November 2, 2017

    This looks like such a fun way to make practical, easy gifts for friends & family. With the holidays coming, I can see how this would be a quick gift idea!

  • Ennis A
    November 2, 2017

  • Mary Lou Bowser
    November 2, 2017

    I would love to make the bag, but I have never done this kind of sewing so I am not sure I could. Love this video though.

  • Marcia
    November 2, 2017

    I would love to try to make the bags, what an unusual item which could be given as gifts to my daughters.
    Thank u for the opportunity and videos.

  • Beth B
    November 2, 2017

  • Peggy Smith
    November 2, 2017

    The mini dishes. would be great storage for my sewing room and gift for my daughter.

  • Cyndi Ferguson
    November 2, 2017

    These are so cute! I’d start with the mini dish, because I could use it right away for keys in the front hall. These will be perfect for the lake house I’m trying to renovate!

  • Margaret Scott
    November 2, 2017

    I would enjoy making a basket. What fantastic projects.

  • Pandora
    November 2, 2017

  • Julie
    November 2, 2017

    I love the coasters for outside drinks. I would love to do some of these projects with my grandsons, baskets and trays. The ideas keep flowing.

  • Noreen
    November 2, 2017

    I would try the trivet first, and then move on to a basket. An interesting sewing craft!

  • EllenB
    November 2, 2017

    I think the tote on the cover is great looking and would hold lots of things for classes, travel, etc.

  • Mary Brock
    November 2, 2017

    Since I’ve never tried a project like this, i think I’d start small with the coasters! Can’t wait to try!

  • Donna C
    November 2, 2017

    Since I already have a little rope sewing experience, I’d go straight for the bag!

  • Barbara Wood
    November 2, 2017

    Love this tutorial! I’d love to jump right in and make the oval tray, but will try to control myself and make a coaster first. If that turns out to be as easy as Lindsey and Nancy make it look, I will make the mini dishes for everyone on my Christmas list.

  • CAROL L.
    November 2, 2017

    I would start with a trivet. I need something for my small casserole dishes. It would really beautify not just the holiday table but every day table!

  • Barbara Lussier
    November 2, 2017

    I’ve only tried rope sewing once, but it wasn’t for anything as functional as these items. I would love to try something like the bowls or bags that have a curve or oval to them.

  • Jackie Lorenz
    November 2, 2017

    I would defiantly start with the trivet

  • Connie Jordan
    November 2, 2017

    I am ready to buy some clothesline rope and give this a try right now. Love the idea of using different colors of thread to go with your own decor.

  • Debbie
    November 2, 2017

    I would have to start with the trivet and work my way up to the tote (which I really love).

  • Marie k
    November 2, 2017

    I would like to make some coasters and trivets. Just to try this with the flat version. And then move onto the shaped bowls and bags. I like that plane rope with the colorful thread

  • Peggy Wagner
    November 2, 2017

    I have never done rope sewing, but would love to learn! I would start with the coasters.

  • Shirley Rozier
    November 2, 2017

    I will start with coasters, and have my granddaughters make for their mom and grandparents. Fun idea! I have a cloth covered bowl my daughter made by hand they are fabulous.

  • Pat Swann
    November 2, 2017

    Coasters first…just to build confidence. After that…everything!

  • Jan C
    November 2, 2017

    I’ve made rope projects before, but never made a ‘necked’ one. I would like to make the purse/bag. Thank you for the opportunity.

  • Judy
    November 2, 2017

    A big basket! I used to do the wrapping process to get lots of color, and use up scraps, but when I got my new sophisticated machine, it wouldn’t let me do the bigger size cord I was used to and I just couldn’t envision using smaller cord because of the monotony of it, so I stopped. No fabric wrapping with this so I’m all in with the small plain clothesline rope. Thanks!

  • Nancy Toupin
    November 2, 2017

    I love these and think they would make great gifts. I would give the trivets a try first using up some of many colors of thread.

  • Laura Odenthal
    November 2, 2017

    I’d so love to learn this. I love the fact that it’s kind of like fold art but with a modern twist!

  • Helen
    November 2, 2017

    These round ones are also great for putting under table lampst o protect the wood surface.

  • Deon
    November 2, 2017

    I was just looking into this type of sewing project (checking out rope suppliers) so this is perfect timing. I’d probably start with a small bowl, but would like to work up to the tote bag.

  • Twyla
    November 2, 2017

    Interested in beginning with the coasters and placemats. Then on to bigger and better things! Thanks for the opportunity to win your giveaway!

  • Rosemary
    November 2, 2017

    I would love to make a bag. I wonder how the rope would take a dye? So cool.

  • scarter
    November 2, 2017

    What a wonderful way to use cotton rope. I would love to try all of them, but especially the oval dish with handles.
    Thanks Nancy.

  • Sandy YH
    November 2, 2017

    Perfectly timed for Christmas gifts! Love the approach! Lindsey is a great presenter also!

  • Nancy W
    November 2, 2017

    I think I will start with a larger coaster for a trivet/pad for hot dishes, but I definitely want to try many shapes. Such a modern look!

  • Beverley Hancox
    November 2, 2017

    Now I want to try this! I always found the fabric wrapped rope too busy looking but the plain rope really caught my eye. Start with trivets then onward and upward (so to speak) into baskets.

  • Marsha Dimond
    November 2, 2017

    I have done many wrapped-rope projects. This sewing without wrapping would be so much faster. I just might jump into the handbag first.

  • LeP
    November 2, 2017

    Yeah! I tried to see a demonstration of making these items, but I could not get through the crowd close enough to see it. Thanks for your demo and I will watch again and try it!

  • Donna Nicklis
    November 2, 2017

    Can’t wait to try this. I will start with the coaster first for practice, but I really want to make the oval tray.

  • Therese Bocchino
    November 2, 2017

    Having never tried this, I will start with the Coasters.
    But hope to graduate up to the plates & bag!

  • Linda Rupe

  • Maggie Hancock
    November 2, 2017

    I want to try the tray and I know it will be used daily. This is so exciting I want to start on it as my next project.

  • Diane S.
    November 2, 2017

    This looks like fun. I made a fabric covered rope bowl and enjoy seeing it in my home daily.

  • Mavis Puchlik
    November 2, 2017

    Christmas gifts galore with such quick and easy projects. Trivets then catch all bowls and maybe a tote. Any great on-line sources of the cord?

  • Elaine Stephenson

  • Traci Y
    November 2, 2017

    I already bought some clothesline to make a bowl. Great to see it in action. I think I would like to start with a small bowl to keep my “extras” by my sewing machine. Will try it with a variegated thread.

  • Leslie Buhl
    November 2, 2017

    I love this project and will probably make all three. Such useful ideas for filling the bowls. These would make great gifts for not only others but for me as well!

  • Bernadette
    November 2, 2017

  • Cathy Van Daalwyk
    November 2, 2017

    I can hatdly wait to try this!

  • Gail Beam
    November 2, 2017

  • Helen Heise
    November 2, 2017

    These are great ideas for Christmas. I think I will start with a small trivet. I would like to make a basket to serve muffins or hot rolls. The wrapped method would work well for these.

  • Rhonda D in KY
    November 2, 2017

    I’m always needing coasters so that’s where I would start. The oval tray is so neat that I would have to try it next.

  • Joyce West
    November 2, 2017

    I would start with a flat coaster or hot pad then move up to the curved bowls. thank you for the opportunity to win a copy of this book.

  • Cecilia
    November 2, 2017

    I would probably start out with the coasters since this is new to me.

  • Cathy
    November 2, 2017

    I will start with coasters in family members’s colors for Christmas presents. Then I will move on to baskets with varigated threads for different folks!!

  • MaryL
    November 2, 2017

    I have done this technique by wrapping the clothes line with strips of fabric and then zig-zag into trivets, bowls and even a couple of small rugs using denim. Very easy and fun. I use them to store my current knitting/crocheting project and have given them as gifts. Even my sons use the trivets. I like the look of the natural clothes line and plan to make some items for gifts

  • Peggy
    November 2, 2017

    I would probably start with the coasters as well. I have a special machine that I do canvas sail repair with, and I think these rope items would sew very easily with this machine.

  • Karen
    November 2, 2017

    I should make some small bowls for the pins in my fitting room.Thanks for the give away.

  • Barbie gearin
    November 2, 2017

    Very good instruction…..I like the larger bowl with the handles and would make it for pine cones for the holiday season.

  • Colleen Eskridge
    November 2, 2017

    I’d like to dive in and go BIG! Start with the oval basket. Love this idea.

  • Barbara Gearin

  • Debbie
    November 2, 2017

    For once I would start with the coasters. I usually start projects without practicing with beginner projects. But since I like all of the projects, I think I will eventually try them all. Very well explained Lindsey and Nancy! Thank you.

  • Edna Marks
    November 2, 2017

    I would start with coasters, just to figure out how to do it, then I like the oval basket.

  • Marty
    November 2, 2017

  • Pauline Dean
    November 2, 2017

    I would love to try and make the bag on the front of the book, and the costers I think would make great gifts for Christmas. I love the oval basket with the handles also.

  • Sarah
    November 2, 2017

    I probably would make coasters first. Though I could see making a dish and putting Christmas gifts in and giving as a gift bag/ dish!

  • Karen P
    November 2, 2017

    I would like to make the tote on the front cover, it looks like it would be a strong bag.

  • L Watson
    November 2, 2017

    I would like to make the oval tray because of the useful handles. However, I would probably make the coasters first for practice, these are great gift ideas!

  • E. Watson
    November 2, 2017

    I would have probably make the coasters first. Then I would make the mini dishes. I’m not sure what I would put in them yet, but I love mini dishes!

  • Becky
    November 2, 2017

    I’d have to start with the coaster to get the feel of the technique and would love to make some bowls and baskets for my hobby room and kitchen. They be great insulators for hot dishes in the kitchen.

  • Maeve
    November 2, 2017

    I would make small bowls. I would first paint sections of the clothesline with acrylic paints, allow to dry overnight, then sew into bowls with colorful threads. I think these bowls would make nice gifts! 😉

  • Anne Z.
    November 2, 2017

    I would make the small bowls. I think they would be great gifts….filled with chocolates.

  • Charlotte
    November 2, 2017

    I used to do this back in the 1980’s. I was working part time at a quilt/fabric/needlework store and the Suzanne McNeill way of covering large cord with fabric and coil8ng on a wood base was so popular but too time consuming for me. I figured out how to do it by machine. My boss wasn’t happy…she said nobody would want to do it. So I dropped the idea after making coasters and baskets. A few years later someone else wrote a book and boom…it was everywhere! I would love to try the tote bag. Since I already know how to handle the cord and sewing machine I think I could tackle it. Thanks for giving us a chance to win.

  • Regina conti
    November 2, 2017

    I discovered the fun and joy of making clothesline baskets/ bowls last year. I have made many fabric covered clotheslines bowls/ trays. Now I am newly inspired to create with the “naked” rope. Thanks Lindsay and Nancy. Hugs to you Nancy

  • Pam
    November 2, 2017

    I would probably make a minibowl first and work my way up to the tote.

  • Ramona
    November 2, 2017

    I would probably make the coasters first to give to my Sailor son for his home…..they have a nautical look about them. I would really like to work my way up to even bigger projects.

  • Lynne H
    November 2, 2017

    I have made coiled vessels with very large piping and rag strips. This would be a wonderful technique to make smaller pieces. Thanks for the lesson.

  • Mary Wippold
    November 2, 2017

    I’ve made rope bowls before and given them as gifts. The recipients all loved them. I’ll definitely make more since I find making them to be very relaxing. I also like using multicolored thread when making them.

    I would start with the oval tray. Thanks for sharing.

    Great segment. I was cleaning my basement last week and found a bag of rope. Now, why would I even have that?

    The coasters are probably the easiest to make but I love the oval tray so that would be my 1st choice.

    Oh, my. I just finished four coasters and a mini bowl and I think I am hooked!! I love the modern look, and these are really fast and simple to make. Thank you for the wonderful Christmas gift idea.

    Fabric wrapping rope was a tad complicated. I really like this technique. I’m going to make a JUMBO-coaster, actually a hot-pad to park right-from-the-oven casserole dishes on (and — depending upon my abilities — am considering making soles for a pair of house slippers). Looks like fun!

    I would love to make the oval basket to fit my baking dish. I think that I would dye the rope first to give it some color.

    I’ve always wanted to try this. I think I’d start with the coasters and work my way up from there!

    I have made many fabric wrapped clothesline baskets. Now I am going to try the oval tray. So cute and easier than the wrapping the fabric! Thank you!

    My first rope-sewing project would be the coasters. The medium results in a nice look. … interesting possibilities.

    I’d like to start with the coasters and then move up to the basket and tote. I like the way she secures the base of the projects

    I would start small first like with the mini bowl to get the feel of how the machine and myself coordinate with connecting cotton rope with the satin stitch and zig zag. After I feel I have accomplished this. I would definitely try making everyday tote.

    Since I will want to make them all, I will make the coasters first and progress from there. Very attractive – every single project!

    First I would like to dye the rope and then use contrasting thread. My first project would be the purse ! Go Big or Go Home they say !!!! :}

    I haven’t been sewing for a long time. When I saw this rope sewing on TV, it made me want to get back into sewing for crafts. Looks like so much fun and everything is functional.

    Thanks so much for this tutorial! I’ve made round and oval bowls. Yesterday I showed my quilting group how to make rope bowls. What fun, creative, inexpensive gifts these make! I gave two away as Christmas gifts.
