Description

Full step-by-step instructions from start to finish on how to cover a bottle with macramé.
This remarkable digital book is a compilation of over 45 years (since 1968) of secrets and techniques I have developed for covering antique (and new) bottles with fine macrame/sailor's knots. Sailors used to cover their rum bottles with macrame/sailor's knots so that if accidentally dropped on a ship's deck the bottle was less likely to break. But they are also very beautiful works of art in their own right. Historically there has been a lack of recorded instruction on how to cover bottles with macrame: I have searched for many years and have never found a comparable book on how to cover bottles. So I produced this digital book and also took all of the photos.

This book will take you from start to finish with detailed text and photographs of the project.

You can download 2 digital versions of this book: PDF will work on all computers, PC or MAC / epub will work on iPad.

You should already know the basic macramé knots before attempting to copy this project. Here is a wonderful free resource to learn basic macramé knots plus a lot more: it is an excerpt from the Encyclopedia of Needlework by Dillmont, Thérèse de, 1846-1890:
