How to make a Macrame Feather

November 1, 2018

It always makes me so happy to make these free tutorial for you all, around the world keen to learn macrame.

I specially love making these macrame feathers because I can use all the string scraps from my larger macrame pieces.

What a better way to use strings that otherwise would go in the bin!

Feather macrame
(Final size of the feather approx. 15x17cm)

MATERIAL:
Keyring/wooden stick
Comb (pet comb)
Tape measure
Sharp scissors

1x50cm single twist string (main string)
16x 30/35cm single twist string

I used 4mm Luxe natural raw cotton string by HitchandArrow

TUTORIAL:

  1. Use a lark knot to place your main string on the wooden stick- pic 1 (tutorial for the lark knot here)

  2. Take the first string, fold it in half and place it under the main string with the ends on the right side- pic 2

  3. Take another string, fold it in half and place it on top of the main string with the ends on the left side

  4. Place the ends of the string on top inside the folded end of string one- pic 3

  5. Place the ends of the string underneath inside the folded end of the string on top- pic 4

            Tips:
            For best result use single twisted string
            You can use a cat brush instead of a comb to speed the brushing process
            After brushing you can use hairspray to stiffen the fringes and make the cutting process easier

            Safety: 

            Brushing cotton string/rope will produce a lot of fine dust and fluff. If you suffer from asthma please use a mask. If you have children or pet, please vacuum and clean after making the macrame feather.
