Step-by-Step Macrame Feather Tutorial:
You Will Need:
Cut a 40cm length of cord and fold in half.
With the folded cord, tie a double knot at the top to create a loop.
Cut 18 x 20cm lengths of cord.
Use larks head knot to attach the lengths of rope to the middle strands. Make sure it’s even by attaching the cords alternately on the left and right hand side. Continue until all cords are attached.
Tie the middle strands in a double knot to secure.
Using a comb gently brush out each of the strands to create the full feather look.
Top Tip: Flip your piece over, and brush both sides!
Cut the felt into a leaf shape; the felt should be a few cm shorter than the desired width for the end product. Flip your work over and, using the glue, carefully adhere this to the brushed out strands.
Trim the strands to the shape of the felt to complete the pendant.
And that’s the end of our macrame feather tutorial – your project is complete! But that doesn’t mean you have to stop there – why not create a selection in a variety of colours and sizes?
