When I got tired of working on my quilt top, I made several macrame plant hangers. 3 of them. All made from my Carousel Buttons pattern. I wanted to see if I could make them, as you would, strictly from following the directions.
First, I made this white one.
With nothing but snow covering the yards, walkways, streets, even trees… I thought if I wanted to see Spring anytime soon, I had better create it myself.
Isn’t the bottom pretty?
Next came the mauve one.
I have had this color cord for a few years. It kind of photographs pink but it is a dusty rose color. It turned out better than I thought it would. I like it. And it looks great in my mauve/green room.
For this one, I changed up the bottom a bit. Instead of the bottom row of Square Knot Buttons being ABOVE the ring, I put them under the ring. So they point downwards instead of out.
Last, I made this cream one.
Several years ago I went through my “cream period”. Everything I macramed was made with this color cord. About 40 items. I only had 300 yards left. So I used most of it on this plant hanger.
This vase is on loan from the dining room.
I plan to make a few more like these. Won’t need to look at my instructions. Have them memorized. Plant hangers measure a little over 6 feet.
If you would like to make your own Carousel Buttons plant hanger, go here for the pattern. Thanks!!
