Macrame is so popular at the moment I thought I should probably see what the fuss is about. Especially since I sell macrame cords. I started out by making a wall hanging but wanted to make something functional. After searching YouTube I came across a 16 minute tutorial by Anna at Blueicrafts for a basic macrame clutch. I ended up making three!
The best part about this clutch... it only requires 100m of 3mm Bobbiny cords AND you only need to know three basic macrame knots. I found this youtube "How to tie the basic knots of macrame" tutorial very useful.
You'll have to cut a 1m length for your holding cord, and 28 x 3.5m lengths for your working cords.
This is what you'll end up with. Then it's only a matter of using the holding cord to sew the sides of the bag and trim the fringe.
I made the clutch in both cotton cords and macrame cords. The cotton cords clutch is definitely firmer because of the nature of the woven cords. The macrame cords clutch is soooo soft. And that fringe!
And now I see what all the fuss is about. My name is Debbie, and I'm addicted to macrame.
