I did a few things and then undid them and then had to finish things up because I started to run out of rope. I actually had to extend the rope by sewing on more rope to the ends so I could finish. Definitely take a lot of rope to do a big design! If you think you have enough...add a few more feet.
So I first tried to do a leaf design in the center, but it was kinda wonky so I undid it and tried a snowflake. As you can see the rope was getting shorter in the middle.
Now that I look at it on here the snowflake makes it look like an eye....hmmm oh well.
I still like it better.
And all done! I may someday do some more macrame-ing, maybe not as big, but I had fun doing it.
Really once you figure out how to do the knots and what design you want it's pretty easy and goes by fast. I would have probably finished in a week had I not run out of rope and had to hand sew more, that kinda took awhile. And that was mostly done during nap time and some evenings after I put Rose down for bed.
