My Crummy Macramé
Not really. It’s not perfect but it’s not crummy. I just liked the wordplay.
It won’t surprise any of my regular readers that, given my love of all things knotty, one of the many crafts I’ve dabbled in is macramé. One of my old projects resurfaced recently so I thought I’d try another. Here are some photos of the old kit and the project that I did as a teenager.
As often happens with me, I didn’t have all the right materials so I had to improvise. I only had three beads so I ended up with something that looks like a weird face.
When I was in Romania I bought an elasticated bracelet off a little old lady. After a while I added my devotional medals to it. After wearing it every day for months the elastic I added started to give up the ghost.
I was sad not to be able to wear it any more so I decided to restore the Romanian bracelet and make a new macramé bracelet for my medals.
Here is the video tutorial I used. I changed the fastening because I wasn’t sure that my yarn would melt and seal like the one in the video.
