When I was about 15, I used to make those macrame' belts and sell them to
the hippies down on the Drag in Austin, TX - circa 1972.....

I'd even dye them in a pot on my stove with good old Rit dye:)

In 1979,I taught a macrame' class at a Candlemas event in Bryn Gwlad,
Ansteorra (Austin, TX again).  I got my AOA at that event.....that was
before I knew about researching A & S.  I even remember making a white
macrame' belt for Sir Randall, the Prince.

Makes me feel a little old. Just tell your daughter that she can make
everything she wants, just not all at the same time.

I just found the hat pattern on ebay and just purchased the book.   Since my
daughter is so much into 70s retro, she will love the pattern in the book.

Funny, we were in a crafts store today purchasing yarn.  My daughter was
wearing her knee retro 70s scarf that I made her last week.  I added beads
to the fringe.  Everyone kept stopping her and wanting a closer look at it.
Then they would ask where she bought it.  LOL!!!

It took me four days to crochet it and one day to bead the fringe.  Now my
daughter is into the macramé belts with the long beaded fringe from the 70s.
I told her that she would have to make them.  Luckily they sell kits for

She is only 12 and always had her own fashion look.  I think she was hooked
today.  She walked around the craft store and all kinds of ideas were
popping in her head for embellishing her clothes.  She said, "How am I going
to find the time to make all the things I want to?"
