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 “fringey” 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.
