Okay so I finished the planter kit from www.macramesuperstore.com! Here's my review:
The instructions were easy to follow. The kit included the ring, two colors of macrame cord, and beads. The pot was not included. The instructions are monochrome and they explain everything in detail. There was even a key on the back of the instructions for additional knots which I appreciated. This design took me about 20-25 minutes to complete. My boyfriends mother was really happy with it as well!
Today I went on Amazon.com and purchased a ton of books on Macrame. Here's what I got:
Beginners Guide To Macrame: How to Learn Macrame in 3 Step by Step Projects (Plant Hanger Series Book 1) Kindle Edition
Decorative Fusion Knots: A Step-by-Step Illustrated Guide to New and Unusual Ornamental Knots
Macrame Pattern Book: Includes Over 70 Knots and Small Repeat Patterns Plus Projects
Macrame: Techniques and Projects (A Sunset Book)
I'll update soon with which books were the best!
I stumbled upon this cool little website for all my Macrame needs! It's called Macrame Super Store. They have just about everything you need to get started with Macrame. I ordered a bunch of "kits" for planters and wall hangings. I'm in full blown obsession level at this point.
I ordered the:
Modern Macrame Wall Hanging Kit update: ( Great basic starter kit)
Plant Hanger Kit - update: ( Great basic starter kit)
Dream Catcher Kit - update: (Great Kit! Just wish I could have picked the colors of the dream catcher)
Owl Hanging Kit - update: (This one was really hard but I learned so many different knot! Definitely advanced but super worth the time and frustration!)
