I had a seventh grade teacher who was kind of a hippie. She would pass the day humming …

the Rolling Stones’ “Angie” and teaching me about art and all things craft. I learned basket-making, how to fashion my own needle from a paper clip, that my drawings were “deep” and that knots can add up to some marvelous things.

Macramé is a way to take knots and turn them into everyday usables and decor. In Making No.7|Desert you’ll find a plant hanger pattern that is easy enough for the newbie and a quick project for the experienced. The photos above show the plant hanger done with some leftover cotton yarn we had in the shop and the key is to choose a yarn that has some grip. Cotton, jute, or even hemp cord work really well and keep things looking natural.

Just so you know, we are proud stockists of Making Magazine and have a few copies left of No.6|Black&White as well as No.7|Desert (see previous post).
