You’ll need: a handbag cotton fabric with a large floral pattern painter’s tape Mod Podge craft paint 2 small plastic dishes 2 brushes scissors Start by taping off the edges and hardware of the handbag.
Growing up by the beach in Southern California, the ability to knot a macrame bracelet was practically a right of passage. Although those days are long behind us, we’ve never forgotten the ever-so-simple square knot technique. This time, however, we’re replacing hemp and wooden beads for more updated elements like colorful nylon cord and glossy metal charms. Happy knotting!
Ooooh I'm so excited to show you this project. I made my own Macrame sandals! Eeeeee!!!! Check them out. Wha?!!! You can make macrame sandals?!!!
You might be saying to yourself... cord? What cord? Ah ha. This is where we’re clever. Remember that three inches of fabric we saved from before?
When you buy most of your wardrobe off the clearance rack and from thrift stores, odds are that most of the stuff is not going to be in your size. ie: GiNoRmous trousers and teeny tops. :) While I haven't figured out a way to make small things larger, I do have a system for making shirts smaller. Fair warning-- this is not rocket science and I'm not one for specific measurements when it comes to sewing up thrift store finds. This makes my detail-oriented, sewist/seamstress of a mother VERY uncomfortable... but that's just how I sew. ;) Step 1: Try on your extra large shirt and figure out just how extra large it really is on you. Holding the seam of the shirt together at your side, take a ruler and measure how much you want your shirt to be taken in. Remember that number.
