This is another of those crafts that I've admired from afar. But more than that I like the look of them and I want to give it a go.
What is Macrame?
It started as a decorative way to secure ends of a piece of woven fabric. It became more than that and soon whole items were made out of macrame. It became very popular with the sailors as a way to spend time while out at sea and then they could sell their finished products.
This is something that I don't have any examples for... actually I'm going to make one example up now!
How to find out more?
I am getting most of my information from an awesome book that mum got. It's an old Reader's Digest craft book.
There are also many websites out there.
I keep linking to this site A Beautiful Mess but they have some awesome DIY crafts. They did an awesome macrame curtain last year.
