    I joined a live chat for the first time a few weeks ago, and I promised to Linda (California) to post my practise project when it was finished. It was finally done, a woven purse made from very cheap cords. It was my first weaving project, as you can see I made many mistakes on the top of the purse. I did very basic knots only. :D

    WOW!!
    Looks great!
    When I was about 16 or 17, I took a macrame class. Mom went to her knitting group and the Community Center down the street had a class starting and Mom asked me if I wanted to take it. SURE! I made a couple purses, wallhangings and just some cutsie stuff. It was fun!

    You did a GREAT job! I am amazed you have any finger tips left I think that is a bit hard on the hands? What a beautiful purse. Are you going to keep this or gift it? I hope it gets lots of use. You are multi talented. Please make sure you share your other projects as you complete them. You should be proud of yourself. and mostly knots? I thought that was what macrame is only its all that counting and other stuff that is involved so you get a pattern vs a pile of tangled up thread/yarn! You made me smile today. Thank you.

    I think it looks great. I use to make plant hangers, it was fun but, if hit or run into, stuff from the jute would go flying everywhere. I used them for years then Salvation Army got them.
