May is here and that means we have created a new exciting Monthly Macrame Challenge for you all! This month we’re making a gorgeous Macrame Wall Hanging by talented teacher Chasta from Soulful Notions.
Affiliate links may be sprinkled throughout the awesome, free content you see below. I’ll receive a small commission when you purchase from my links (at no extra cost to you), which I’ll happily spend on more colorful macrame cords!
