Micro Macrame Successes

by Sherri Stokey

Susan hadn't ever tried micro macrame before, but she tried the KnotAlong tutorial I shared in this post a couple weeks ago and shared her piece with us.  Didn't she do a great job on her first try?  

Donna's done quite a lot of micro macrame, so she decided to add a little twist on her pendant by using multiple colors:

This one was from Hilary:

And Susan:

I learned a couple of things from the feedback and comments of folks who participated, too.  Valerie shared how she dips her cords in Fray Check - did you know you could pop the top out and then you have the whole bottle opening to dip in?  Who knew!!   I can't believe I've been fighting that all these years and it's as simple as popping that piece out when you want.  It goes right back in, too, so it's back to the little applicator tip for use in coating knots when ending projects.  Thanks for sharing, Valerie!!

Georgette also shared that Super New Glue will darken at least some cords.  I've used the hypo cement for years and haven't had that issue, so I think I'll continue recommending it.  Aren't Georgette's colors gorgeous?

Many thanks to those of you who took time to share your successes with the rest of us.  If you haven't tried micro macrame knotting yet, I'm here to tell you that you can do it and the KnotAlong video will show you how, step by step.

If you did try it and you're ready for more projects, I have tutorials in my Etsy shop and a special coupon code just for you.  Use code "TENOFF" to save 10% in my shop.  The code is good on finished jewelry pieces and kits as well as the tutorials and is valid through 9/8/15.  Have fun!!

I must have missed your post on the free knotting tutorial, I have never tried macrame but might give it a try now. All the pictures above are great what a lot of talent there is everwhere!
