Time flies when you’re knotting away! June is already here and that means a new Monthly Macrame Challenge. This month we’re working with color and are making a wall hanging inspired by the beautiful artworks of Fibers of Mine.
Affiliate links may be sprinkled throughout the awesome, free content below. I’ll receive a small commission when you purchase from my (Amazon) links (at no extra cost to you), which I’ll happily spend on more colorful macrame cords!
Monthly Macrame Challenge June
For the June Macrame Challenge, we’ve chosen to work with 2 amazing free video tutorials provided by our featured Macrame teacher, Sasha from Fibers of Mine, and will focus on learning some amazing new knots and techniques.
Working with color
The beautiful Sonata Del Mar wall hanging is one of our most popular posts in the Macrame for Beginners Facebook Group. Luckily, maker Sasha from Fibers of Mine created a wonderful tutorial that teaches us exactly how to make such a colorful and modern Macrame wall hanging.
For this month’s challenge, we would like you to get creative with color and apply the techniques Sasha explains in her 2 latest tutorials.
You are free to design your own wall hanging, use your own favorite colors or remake the wall hangings shown in these examples. We can’t wait to see your gorgeous designs!
