While at my mom’s I helped her out a bit by putting some books on her bookshelves. While doing this, I discovered two great books, both are from the early 70’s. And oh are they filled with 70’s goodness. My favorite is probably this wonderful tie…awesome! My mom told me that during that time, she would embroider shirts with glorious colorful motifs. I really wish she had held on to some of her projects…I would absolutely love to see them (and maybe wear them too!).
The macrame book has some projects that I would really like to experiment with. I have been admiring macrame plant hangers lately, and I would love to try it out. I’m thinking something along the lines of this beauty from Urban Outfitters. Lovely.
Macrame kinda feels like a throw back to all the friendship bracelets I used to make when I was in elementary school, and I think I like that. Have any of you tried macrame before? Do you think this could be fasionable, or is it too out dated?
