Macrame was one of the first crafts I remember being exposed to. During the '70s I remember my parents hanging all kids of weird rope projects around our apartment. I remember my father making this funny macrame clown doll that he hung from the rear view mirror of our gold colored Plymouth Fury. I also remember our spider plant hanging from a macrame flowerpot holder. I guess that's why I have always had a special place in my heart for Macrame crafts, they almost define for me what crafting is all about, making a craft that is isn't too difficult but looks really cool and can be super practical too. You can also use macrame crafts to make cool clothing accessories or parts of Hippie costumes for Halloween.
