HOW-TO TUESDAY: Make Your Own DIY Macramé Watchband (Free Project Download!)

Remember making friendship bracelets?  I used to be THE MASTER at those things!  Twist, stripe, zigzag… I could do all the fancy patterns (and in all the colors of the rainbow).  So, what do you do with that kind of talent when you outgrow your teenage years?  Macramé of course!  One of my friends has a HUGE macramé wall hanging that was actually hand-made by her grandmother.  Free People (one of my favorite unaffordable clothing brands) sold some rockin’ macrame footwear back in 2011.  And SMP Craft’s own Macramé Pattern Book features several awesome projects, from jewelry to purses.

So, dust off your friendship bracelet skills, ditch your embroidery thread and go out and purchase some thin leather or satin cords and GET CREATIVE with making your macramé wearable fashion, like this idea for macramé watchbands!
