I'm over here today....in Germany......on an online magazine called SO LEB' ICH!
It was lovely to be asked.
If your German is a bit rusty, I have asked goggle to translate!
I want it too!, I immediately thought when I stumbled across the lights of beautiful plants Pippa Taylor the first time. The young mother from Melbourne enlivened with her label Ouch Flower extremely clever a trend from the 70s again: The knotting technique macramé (Spanish macramé, from the Arabic migramah = "weave").
Whether tapestry, plant lights or tassels chain - with a handful of different nodes are relatively simple to make great decorative elements themselves. Exactly how it's done, Pippa shows on her blog in the "Knot School". Step by step she explains with photos each node.
Ran to the nodes!
Super suitable for great macrame decoration is Zpagetti, because it's with the thick cords goes really fast. Node but you can with any type of yarn, simply dyed colorful part of the node can you by Pippa's example. Especially nice is it when their beads incorporated.
Let your imagination run wild with macrame is as good as anything is possible!
Thanks Kati! :)
