I’ll lie here and learn
How, over their ground
Trees make a long shadow
And a light sound.

– Louise Bogan

I’ve seen a couple of cute binder clip purses while perusing the miniatures blogosphere.  After viewing a couple of tutorials I thought “that looks so easy, I’ll try it myself, but with macrame!”  I followed the easy peasy tutorial for the fuchsia lining at Mini 1 to 12.

To begin the macrame, I attached all the knotting cords to a single holding cord using Larks Head knots.  I tightly tied the holding cord to the top of the binder clip.  The Larks Head knots were coaxed into an even distribution completely covering the holding cord. From that point it would have been just like any other macrame project were it not for my curly cord and the teensy weensy constraint of it all.

Actually this project was started a few months ago when my cataracts were not so problematic.  I had laser cataract surgery last week and oh my fruit loops what a difference!  All of a sudden the world is brighter and clearer.  I can read better, drive better, see the dust build-up in my house better, and macrame again.  How lovely.
