How to Macrame – video

How to macrame - video

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. . .

Happy sewing!

    Great idea for softie’s hair styles.
