Learn to Macrame

Recommended Posts

Here is another craft you don't hear about often.

 

Here is a site for learning the basic knots, for macrame.

I did this one time, and then never did it again. Have others done this craft??

 

(((((HUGS)))))

I've made hemp necklaces, which is macrame knots on a small scale. I haven't made anything large like a belt or plant hanger or anything though, too many other projects going.

i have made hemp necklaces as well. not in a long time. my sister in law makes a lot of them, so we usually all end up with one each at christmas. hee hee i use macrame to put straps on the purses and other bags i make.

I've made large hanging planters as well as small ones. Sold

a bunch and gave a bunch away at Christmas time. Fun to do.

It's time consuming. Haven't macramed since the 1980's except for a few things for myself.

GOODMORNINGDOGONSWING.gif you are so right, I put that there lets see, how long ago. I suppose it has been changed at the site. THANKYOUBUTTERFLY.gif for bringing it to our attention. smile

 

sorry-3.jpg I'll try to find the right link as soon as I can, right now, it is late and I need to feedme breakfast. Then I'll see about fixing it.

 

Yes, it was me, but during the last change in Mrs. S., our names got all mixed up and so those of mine are now under LCM. smile

Ok, so I didn't wait.

 

Here are a few links that did work for me just now. I did a google search and the link that I had before just isn't working there either. frown

That is strange. When I pulled it up it showed the picture. I opened an extra tab to put it in.

 

I just clicked it and clicked open and it showed the picture.

Okay furbabymom, when I did it this time it took me to my sign in too. I don't know what I have done wrong. The picture is of a cradle that she made with macrame and it is gorgeous! Hope I can get this figured out to share with you guys.

Okay folks here is the sad news........she made the pattern and keeps it in her head. So no passing it on. She (like I) is very creative but does not always write patterns down. So when one is requested she just builds it from memory.

GOODMORNINGFLOWERS4.gif yet for a couple minutes at least. smile

 

Nett, that is really nice. smile

 

Now, did you realize you can put the picture right in the post? Just click on the IMG code and it will copy the picture and then just paste that into the post. smile

 

I've been using photobucket for a long time now. smile

GOODMORNINGDOGONSWING.gif KatMom,

 

The only places I know of would be like Hobby Lobby and other craft stores. I've not seen this type of stuff in any of the Wal-Mart stores. I haven't been to the dime store lately, but, don't remember seeing any Macrame stuff in there the last time I was in there.

 

I'll do a search on line, and maybe a person can get it on line. smile
