Monthly Macrame Challenge July
For our new July Challenge, we’ve teamed up with Macrame teacher Dan Soliman from Habit Made and this time we’re making a gorgeous Boho Macrame handbag!
Macrame bags are super trendy this Summer and will look so cute with your boho Summer outfits! And let’s not forget, they’re also the perfect project to show off your amazing knotting skills to friends and family.
Macrame Bag by Habit Made
Making your own stylish Macrame fashion accessories is so much fun and a great way to learn new techniques.
This beginner-friendly tutorial by Habit Made will teach you all the basics of making your own Macrame bag so you’ll be able to work on your own designs next!
Supplies needed for your Macrame bag
To make this Macrame bag you need a total of 110 meters / 120 yards of 5mm 3-Ply Macrame cords. To get started you will have to cut 36 cords at 305cm / 120 inches.
TIP: To help you evenly align your first row of square knots 2 inches below the dowel, you can attach a piece of cardboard or a ruler to your work.
For this challenge, you are free to slightly alter the pattern and you can use your own favorite Macrame cords and colors.
Please make sure to adjust the cord measurements when you’re using a different type of cord (braided or single twist instead of 3-Ply) or different cord thickness. We can’t wait to see your gorgeous designs!
