Customer Review

I already had Isabellas Macramé for the Modern Home so was excited to view this book.

Isabella explains all the cord types and what accessories you need, and also provides clear photos of how to do the different knots. As Im still a beginner to macramé, I like that the projects are graded by difficulty. I moved on to the Half Hitch Cinnamon Decoration which is a beginner project as I had made keyrings in the same knots and pattern so knew Id be able to do these. I will make more of these and will add a nice sparkly string for hanging along with the other cinnamon decoration and will get the right card to do a few other designs too.

Customer Review

I've wanted to do macramé for ages and I recently bought a kit but the instructions were awful. I was then given this book and it us truly amazing, instructions are really clear and there are some fantastic ideas for Christmas. I also love how it's broken down into skill levels. So look forward to making some beautiful Christmas decorations!
