So all the materials for my Macrame project arrived. I couldn't wait to start my first project. The hardest part was definitely cutting the copper. Have the boyfriend do this for you for sure. After that was done it was easy peasy. The knot for this design was fairly easy and repeated the entire design. So once I got the first knot, it was all repetition.
In terms of the cotton piping. I find that I actually do not like this material at all. it sheds, gets dirty easily, and is just not very aesthetically pleasing to me. I do however really like how the copper pops on this design.
Verdict: Nailed it
Pattern: I give it a 10 out of 10 - Easy to follow pattern and beautiful design
Materials: Copper A+, Cotton Piping D
Here's the finished product. I'll let you be the judge!
I recently remodeled my entire condo and in the process I totally fell in love with Macrame. I totally remember my mother having Macrame around the house when I was a kid. It's so nostagetic yet visually appealing.
Today I was browsing Pintrest and saw this post:
Looks amazing right?! I think I can totally do this.
I ordered all the materials. I'll post again when everything get here and I get started on it.
I've been looking for a hobby and I think this just might be it!
