Updated video and tutorial below:
Macramé is a knotting art that dates back to the 13th century. Sailors needed to know these techniques as well. This was a popular decorative art in the Victorian era. This was interesting to know, although my interest came from my mom who learned macramé in high school. Its peak popularity was in the 1970s. My mom made wall hangings and belts. I thought it would bring fresh details to today's fashions, and I was inspired to use it for a few of my designs seen below and here. Some things do come back as a blast from the past!
