Book Review: Macrame Fashion Accessories & Jewelry by Sylvie Hooghe
Macramé Fashion Accessories & Jewelry by Sylvie Hooghe is a fascinating and visually stunning book. The pictures are crisp and beautiful. The plentiful amount of diagrams and instructions give beginners enough to learn to begin the hobby and yet the book has plenty to keep the advanced hobbyist from being bored. Just as stated in the title, the book Macramé Fashion Accessories & Jewelry by Sylvie Hooghe, gives a large variety of DIY projects to make fashion accessories and jewelry with macramé including flip-flops, bags, belts, scarfs, decorative pins, garment edgings, bracelets, necklaces, key chains, and beaded projects.
The introduction explains in detail the types of materials and tools that are needed for macramé and types of knots used. The directions are well explained in step by step instruction and illustration throughout the book. I like how there are several picture views of the final projects. I had a hard time reading this book without getting out my macramé supplies. I was very happy to review this book and I highly recommend anyone interested in macramé to buy this book.
