DIY Macramé Fringe Top

Supplies: tshirt for string
top for collar
clip board/dress from for macramé

 I love the simplicity of macramé along with the detail it gives to my designs.  You will want to learn the knots from the first macramé project -here- before starting.  



Cut strips of a tshirt and pull for the strings. you will need 11 strips that measure about 62 inches. 

Next follow the video ...


Once completed top stitch the piece along a collar or even the back as a racer-back.

  2. It's beautiful. Who would have guessed that oldfashioned Macramée we learnt in school in the seventies would see such a lovely revival. :-)

  4. I am kind of confused...all 11 strands together equal 62 inches?

    2. you will fold them in half when you mount them on the base string. So they will be 31 inches at that point

  7. Beautiful.... :) would it be possible to use cotton instead or is not stretchy enough?

  9. A quick question... do you need an extra large shirt to cut out the strings? or will a medium size be okay?
