Macrame? On a sewing/embroidery/quilting site?
Yes – macrame. I love using macrame for doll and softie hair and in this video I teach you my favorite stitch – a basic twist.
In the video I showed you one of the monster softies I used it on (for cute twisty pink pigtails) but I thought I’d show you another variation.
I made this guy years ago and I still love the macrame hair. Want to see it a little closer?
I gathered all the hair into a topknot and then knotted each four strands into a macrame twist. It’s so much fun! And it never takes as long as I think it’s going to.
Give macrame a try on your next project! I might even incorporate a bit of it into the monster quilt. . .
you are great!
thank you for sharing!
I ain’t gonna say nothin about showing your age when you show us how to macrame. Nope not a word 😉
I still have a 1960’s book om how to!
Great idea for softie’s hair styles.
fabulous! I knew I saw this on here. Thank you so much for the tutorial, now I’m going to use it on my new stuffy. Question, where do you find fat yarn?
I think I got this at Joanns.
If I am alternating it and forgot whether I should b weaving the left cord I or right cord, can I figure out by looking at the cord
Yep. Just take a look and you can tell.
