Macrame Bag and Giveaway!

I have seen a ton of these macrame look bags all over the place; Wicker bags as well. Of course, I don’t want to pay for one so I went ahead and made one. I haven’t quite found a way to make a wicker bag yet but next time I am at a thrift store I will be looking through their baskets to see what I can find!

This bag took me about 2 hours to make.  The materials I used were a large roll of 6mm craft rope from Hobby Lobby and acrylic rings that I bought online for a different bag I was making. I used square knots throughout the bag. To close off the bag at the bottom, I used multiple surgeons knots and glued them to make sure it was secure. Once the bag was to my liking I unraveled the extra rope that was hanging at the bottom and fluffed it up to give it that β€œfringey” look. The results were this beautiful macrame bag. This bag has enough space for a large wallet (like the one pictured) and a phone as well. This is the tutorial I followed but I made mine larger and with the fluff at the bottom.

    @islandsewcialist – So believe it or not I have been looking at macrame videos on youtube for the last year with the intention of making home decor and bags but I haven’t attempted any yet. I don’t know why I am so intimidated. But with this style of bag priced at over $100 here, I better throw my fear out the window fast because I am not paying that! Yours is super cute and very inspiring. Love the bright colour too.

      Wow $100? I though $22 at forever 21 was too much! I only paid $8 for the roll and it was enough to make 2 bags but i made a belt instead. The rigs you can find online for like $2-$3 each or use the wooden letter O like on the tutorial as the handles. You should definitely give it a try!
