Fasten off and weave in any loose ends. Follow Finishing instructions to stiffen fiber.

Finishing (for all three projects)
Using 3 parts fabric stiffener (glue) to 1 part water, pour enough glue mixture to cover the bottom of a plastic bag. Place the cylinder in the bag and squish to cover the surface with the solution. Remove the cylinder and pat with a paper towel to remove excess glue. Bend a piece of plastic mesh into a tube to make the form, or use a glass big enough to help the cylinder keep its shape while it dries. Insert the form, smooth the piece to the desired shape, and set in a warm place to dry completely. It should only take a couple of hours to set.

Variations
You can stitch up the bases with almost any fiber, including jute, twine, and cotton thread.
Make the vases larger or smaller by adding or removing rounds of increases to change the width and adjusting the rows to change the height.
Experiment with the mesh patterns, using taller stitches and additional chain stitches to create larger spaces.

Wow, thanks for posting this up Badger, these look fab! Would make lovely christmas presents!

How long do they tend to take to make up?

They'd be really nice fitted onto a straight sided glass tumbler as a vase for flowers.
