Today is the first of, hopefully, many guest tutorials. The first guest spot is for Claire from Claireabellamakes.com especially for the HestersHandmadeHome readers she designed this cute macrame key chain!
I first came to see Claire's designs when spending a lost hour on twitter and stumbling across #handmadehour. It showed one of Claire's bicycle bracelets which I fell in love with right away and purchased instantly. I kept in touch with Claire on twitter as I love her blog and she decided to treat all of you, HestersHandmadeHomers with an exclusive key chain design.
Claire uses macrame in her bracelets and key chains, macrame is making a big comeback at the moment. A few years ago it was still associated with that tacky flower pot holder your nan had in her kitchen, but a lot of young designers are using the macrame technique to create great pieces. Have a look at these modern macrame images.
So get your macrame groove back on and knot a little key chain!
