If you're a child of the 70's, you may have tried macrame in your youth. Remember the wall hangings (mine was an owl), the hippie necklaces, the plant hangers? Macrame has practical uses too, like purse handles and belts. My purse handle broke last week, and I decided to try to macrame a new handle. I know it would have been easier to buy a new purse, but I thought I'd give it a try.
Here's a website with more info on macrame.
