Macrame!

I have found a few old macrame plant hanger patterns and have them in my Bonanzle shop.....I've always loved the look of macrame..back in the 70s it was all the rage...there were even entire board and stick shops dedicated to macrame...and classes. Sadly, they are all gone now.....and these patterns are getting rare.....I do hope this craft comes back..its so useful...and
dramatic for plant hangers....easy to do too!

We were given a pretty macrame hanger for a shower gift some 36 years ago that is still used today...I've put poinsettias in it at Christmas time..sunflowers in the summer, daisies in the spring.....fall leaves..well, you get the idea......right now, yellow fabric roses.....

we've enjoyed this hanger for a long time and probably will for many more years..what a great gift, huh?


There is a complete how to book also.......with techniques, etc. plus many patterns for all types of macrame..wall hangings, plant hangers, jewelry, totes, plus more....


I have sold several of these type pattern books and just have a few left..when they are gone, they're gone.....I have one I am giving away with a macrame book purchase...the binding is loose but the pages are quite usable.....


Amazing, what great things that can be made with string and rope!
