Hello! I’m making a gift for a friend. I attempted to do a little leaf and vine pattern here. Does it look like a few leaves on a vine? Would this be nice enough to be a gift? Thanks!
What I did was start from the middle of the line, wrap around the pencil, push a bight up through the previous bight (which is the middle for the first pass), and continue that until desired (3 in this case), then finally pass the end through all of the bights. Repeat this for the other side and pass both ends through all of the bights. Taking the ends out of the bights allows the whole thing to fall apart.
I saw this used as what I took to be a decorative knot on a saya (katana scabbard) where one last bight was passed through all of the bights instead of the ends so the sageo (cord) could be pulled apart easily. The middle of the sageo was passed through the kurigata (a small knob with a hole) so there's an even amount of bights on either side.
Hi, and thanks in advancd for any help
Tried to make this wall hanging from a guide on YouTube. The final instruction is to trim the remai ning pieces to 6 inchs but as you can see, my shortest cords are no where near 6 inches. Not sure where I went wrong to get such wildly different lengths. Any help would be appreciated!
I continue to share my work with you. This time one of my very first works is a large-scale wall panel. It turned out to be a whole picture! One day my son brought me a drawing of mountains and the sun above them:
- Dad, can you enlarge and weave this picture so that it can be hung on the wall?
“Hmm...” I answered, “give me a little time, I’ll think about what can be done.”
And this picture:
Hey y’all! I’ve never tried macrame before, but I’m gonna jump in and try to make a dress! It’s for an “anything but clothes” party, and I don’t fancy wearing boxes or beer cans ;)
So my plan is to drape fishnets into a “dress.” (Like fishnets you catch fish in, not wear on your legs. Fishnets made of macrame. “Of macrame”? Is that how you say it? This is how much of a beginner I am.)
Sooo… I’m thinking of 5mm 3ply in Sand color from Bobbiny. A simple fishnet pattern and adding some sea glass beads inside some of the knots? Plus starfish pasties 😜
Do you guys have any tutorial recommendations or general hints for this? Does my rope choice make sense? Can I take measurements and then do the knotting on a stick?
Followed a youtube from LET BE 렛비
I’m a macrame artist and am starting to offer some of my pieces for sale. But I’m a bit concerned about the legality of some things. I would obviously never sell a super original design of someone’s without their permission, but what about things like keychains or very common patterns that we see everyone use? I make Daisy keychains and I’m afraid someone will come after me claiming I stole their design even though I see everyone selling Daisy keychains
Don't worry I don't need a step by step but I would LOVE if someone could tell me the name of a knot or a technique that I could look at to finish this.
I will knot in between the beads, and I want it just as a string and hopefully this quartz attached to one end. The beads are way too small to thread twice.
I have been making bracelets and necklaces for a while but ngl I suck so hard at finishing them off!!
This is a new thing I want to do, and I am even more stuck.
I use E6000 glue but I might just try straight up super glue.
This is a massive ask for advice with this because it's basically... completely not even slightly finished. 🤦🏼♂️
I feel like there is a cool macrame tie that I could use to finish this off?
But I am happy to spend hours trying to work it out if I have a certain technique I know might help!
Thank you for looking and again I know this might be a big ask, thank you so much in advance!!!!
I would say I’m moderately experienced with macrame, but I almost exclusively make larger pieces; I haven’t made bracelets since I was in grade school.
I’m pulling the holding strings straight down while knotting my travel strings, yet the edge still isn’t straight and it’s frustrating me. As you can see from the photo, it’s more pronounced on the right side than the left. What am I doing wrong and how do I correct it??
Any insight or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
I started my very first piece of macrame coaster, and it is doming. What did I do wrong?
