August Monthly Macrame Challenge
For our new August Monthly Macrame Challenge, we’ve teamed up with Macrame teacher Sheena Joy from the amazing Youtube channel Simply Inspired.
To celebrate Summer and enjoy some lovely tropical vibes we both thought a Flamingo wall hanging would be the perfect Macrame project for August!
This pixel style Macrame wall hanging will brighten up any wall AND you get to practice your vertical double half hitch knot in the process. WIN-WIN!
Once you’ve got this knotting technique down, you’ll be able to easily create your very own pixel art Macrame wall hanging projects.
In this video by Simply Inspired you can learn how to make your own custom pattern for your next Macrame pixel wall hanging!
