MACRAME BUNTING PATTERN (usually $5.00 now $2.50)
This Pattern tutorial comes with comprehensive instructions written in English, with sketches, to create a macrame woven bunting about 3-3.5m long with 5 flags, approximately 10cm wide (length of flags is your choice, up to about 20cm, but this can change according to your tension).
To make this project, you will require about 50 metres of rope, 3-4mm in thickness.
If you've always wanted to try making a macrame, but were unsure where to start, this project is for you! Teenagers and crafty kids from 8 years + could make this too, with the younger children possibly needing help with the instructions.
What a great gift for a birthday or Christmas present, or for an activity to keep them busy through school holidays, wet weekends etc.
