Project 29: Macrame

August 1, 2011

9563 Macrame Hanging Detail

Have you ever tried macrame? This fiber art uses a series of knots to make interesting textiles. Decorative macrame items like plant holders and wall hangings were popular in the 1970’s but not so much anymore.

So why am I doing this project? A friend was wearing a bracelet recently that I had thought was macrame, but when I got closer it turned out to be something else. Still, the idea of that macrame bracelet stuck with me and I’d like to see if I can create it.

Wish me luck!
