I’ve been super busy and super secretive too…… learning Macrame!
New skill number 2 – tick and it’s only January! (Number one was calligraphy – read about it here)
I know – very retro, but also very in too!
It’s super addictive too when you get going, and pretty quick to get results.
The downside – my word my arms ached after the first one! All that reaching up, and using different muscles I’m sure I never had before!
The hardest thing was working out where to make it. Hanging from something high enough so I could stand, but then have enough space to actually make the hanger! So the resulting place was above a chair hanging from a wicker heart which was hung on the wall- not ideal, but needs must.
We then tried a chair on the table, when I taught the blue one how to make one too.
I’ve made a lot of these now, but I only have one houseplant. Maybe it’s time to put them on Etsy?
(Another secret – I taught a workshop to 5 lovely ladies last Friday- will post later in the week about it – it was the best fun!)
So here we have attempt number 3. The terracotta, and the green plant really make this hanger “pop”.
I had a go using Cygnet super chunky yarn too. The pot was a little too small for this hanger, but the effect still works nicely.
T-shirt yarn for added texture and colours.
All of the above are the same design, but I wanted to try something new next.
My favourite so far is this one.
